Tawny Frogmouth remains were by no means common in Powerful Owl pellets or remains at butchery trees but there were a few amongst the 24 pairs on the Georges River in Sydney. Dominant birds were parrots (cockatoos, galahs and assorted psittidae), corvids and the occasional kookaburra. The Frogmouth is a very similar size and weight to most of these but we assumed its paucity in the records was largely due to their common activity times i.e. both were mobile at the same time and the POWLs tactic crash tackling prey at night would be less effective on frogmouths hypothetically.
