Bird or Owl?
Hello! My sister found this bird in Sydney Australia, can you help to tell me if it is a bird or an owl?

Looks like a Frogmouth to me. Tis a bird for sure, but not sure where it sits in relation to owls.

Owls are birds too ;-)
Agree with Thing, this is a Tawny Frogmouth Podargus strigoides, widespread in Australia. Fairly closely related to owls, more-or-less intermediate between owls and nightjars.
