Sri Lankan Frogmouth

Nathan Yaussy at Endangered Ugly Things wrote about an intriguing bird: Sri Lankan Frogmouth ARKive says, "Distinctive in both its appearance and its loud laughing song, the Sri Lankan frogmouth is a tropical bird related to the nightjars. So called because of its large, gaping mouth, the Sri Lankan frogmouth's head is as wide as its body, and has a broad, flattened, hooked bill. The female is rusty red with sparse white freckling, whereas the male is grey and more heavily spotted with white. The tail feathers are long and narrow." I think they're kind of cute.
