Frogmouths are members of the nightjar family, and are more closely related to kookaburras and kingfishers than to owls.They are found throughout the Australian mainland, Tasmania and southern New Guinea.
Tawny Frogmouths inhabit open forests and woodlands of eucalyptus and acacias throughout Australia.
Found this one sitting by the side of the road today. I moved it off to the bush and it hardly moved, thought it must have been injured or sick, but then it just flew off... who knows...
