Hello Michael

According to HANZAB 4, all rufous morph Tawny Frogmouths are female.
There is also a chestnut morph (like the rufous but darker) which only
occurs in females.

Papuan and Marbled Frogmouths do not have recognised colour morphs, but
there is much variation in plumage in both species and females are more
rufous than males.
