When a roosting Tawny Frogmouth is discovered, it usually adopts a cryptic posture which makes it resemble a broken-off branch: it perches stiffly, sleeking its plumage and orientating its tail along the branch, and narrowing its eyes to slits. In addition, its plumage, a blend of spots, blotches and streaks of grey, brown, black and tawny, blends in almost perfectly with its surroundings. However, at night, when not roosting in disguise, frogmouths they are much easier to spot.
