This Australian bird called the Tawny Frogmouth has a freakish ability to blend in with its environment. Look at the picture below – it can easily be bypassed and mistaken for a tree but as we have pointed out – there’s actually two birds in that picture.

It is amazing how they have their heads pointed in a straight position to imitate the shape of this old tree branch and they make themselves undetectable even in the daylight.

Here is and example of the camouflage technique in the video below.

The birds are easily mistaken for owls. Tawny Frogmouths are big headed predator birds and can vary in size. They are native to Tasmania and Australia.

Males are slightly lighter than females but usually, they are grey.

When they open their yellow mouths, their cover is busted though. Maybe they can make nice pets but good luck searching for it in the house lol.
