Birds that start with T

Birds in all shapes, colors and sizes. Birds that fly, birds that walk, birds that chirp, birds that talk.
Scientific name: podargus strigoides
Tawny frogmouths are birds very distantly related to owls. Owls usually hunt by flying around at night looking for food, but tawny frogmouths sit still on a perch waiting for food to come to them. They catch their prey with their beaks rather than their feet, and sometimes drop from their perch onto the prey on the ground. Tawny Frogmouths hunt at night and spend the day sitting on a dead log or tree branch. They camouflage very well. They sit very still, and look just like a piece of dead tree branch.
