Caption

Tawny Frogmouth (Podargus strigoides). Often mistaken for an owl, the frogmouth is actually related to the nightjar. While it does have anisodactyl feet (one pointing backwards) like an owl, it doesn't fly to hunt - rather it perches, and waits for its food - insects, frogs and rodents, to come by, then it strikes with its beak. Photographed at Smith Lake, New South Wales, Australia.
