What a mouth!

"What a mouth, what a mouth, what a North and South, blimey what a mouth she's got!" The lyrics of this song could amost have been written with the Tawny Frogmouth in mind. A nocturnal bird not unlike an owl but as Leeanne says on her fantastic etegami, most decidedly not an owl! I knew what it was the moment I saw it, those whispy little feathers around the beak are a givaway. The frogmouth is known as such because of its spectacularly wide gape which it uses to great effect catching moths and other insects. Rather a comical creature, it extends it's neck and pretends to be a dead broken branch in a gum tree during the day. I love it Leeanne! Thank you.
