    Frogmouths are nocturnal birds, related to nighjars and poorwills. They are named for their huge, froglike mouths. The tawny frogmouth (Podargus strigoides) is a specific species, native to Australia, often confused for an owl.

    Tawny frogmouths are birds that look very much like owls. They have really wide mouths, like frogs, which were they derived their name from. They also have big sharp, triangular, hooked bills, and really short legs with small feet while ranging in length from 9 to 21 inches. Although most live in Australia, there are also some in Tasmania.
