The tawny frogmouth (Podargus strigoides) is a species of frogmouth native to Australia that is found throughout the Australian mainland and Tasmania. Tawny frogmouths are big-headed stocky birds often mistaken for owls due to their nocturnal habits and similar colouring. They are not raptorial birds, and are therefore not owls.
Saw 3 of these birds on a trip to the Boondall wetlands with Neil Ross and Shanna Bignell.
