Perhaps the most amazing bird I've ever seen, the "Tawny frogmouth" looks like it's actually made of wood. Here the open eye gives the animal away, but look how seamlessly the body blends with the branch upon which the bird is perched. Simply incredible! Many thanks to Echidna Walkabout Nature Tours for showing me this bird and so much more. Photographed in the wild in the Serendip Sanctuary outside of Melbourne, Australia.
