They are actually primarily insectivores, only occasionally they will eat a frog or mouse. It's true they do not have powerful feet, but they sit and wait for their prey to come to them.

"The bulk of the Tawny Frogmouth's diet is made up of nocturnal insects, worms, slugs and snails. Small mammals, reptiles, frogs and birds are also eaten. Most food is obtained by pouncing to the ground from a tree or other elevated perch. Some prey items, such as moths, are caught in flight"
