Tawny frogmouth
Pictures of tawny frogmouths, which are an Austrailian/Tasmanian bird of prey closely related to owls.
They're closely related to owls, but not technically a member of the owl familiy. When frightened, frogmouths adopt a "broken branch" posture as camouflage. They become active at dusk, feeding on insects and small animals which they snap up with their wide mouths.
