Podargidae – Frogmouths

They wear a magical cloak that helps them hide in plain sight

Frogmouths are found in the forest, often acting as part of the fallen tree branch. Their opened beaks look much like frogs’ mouths, hence the name. They are often linked with owls but are more closely related to nightjars. Flying is not one of their strengths; thus, they prefer sitting on the trees instead of flying.

These birds are not picky eaters; they eat pretty much any insect they can swallow. They ferociously hit the large prey against a rock to get desirable bites. This behavior is certainly not cute and makes these birds look even more frightening.
