Tawny Frogmouth, regarding me disdainfully, while perched on a suburban recyling bin at Smiths Lake, New South Wales. Often mistaken for an owl the frogmouth is actually related to the nightjar (and owls have binocular vision, like humans). While it does have anisodactyl feet (one pointing backwards) like an owl, it doesn't fly to hunt - rather it perches, and waits for it food to come by - insects, frogs and rodents, to come by, then it strikes with its beak.
