Help needed

I can't help thinking I've seen this bird somewhere before.  Can anyone help?

  2. That's interesting. The first bird I thought of was the Tawny Frogmouth but I knew it wasn't that. Yet I see on that website that they see the similarities also.

    Tawnies are terrific birds. You can miss them easily because they blend into the branches so well.

  3. Thanks for the help. A bit more research has told me this is a potoo and it is nocturnal, hence the big yellow eyes. Natives of South America and some Caribbean islands.
