What kind of mouths do frogs have?

A tawny frogmouth keeps a wary eye on the photographer.

I don’t think I’ve ever seen a frog with a mouth like this, but I’ve certainly seen lots of Tawny Frogmouths like this!

The Frogmouth is a nocturnal bird, which during the day has the convenient (for photographers) habit of sitting very still in the branches of trees.

Often they close their eyes, seeming to think if they do that they can’t be seen. And sometimes, when you get a bit close, they stare you down.

What a beautiful bird.
