Ooooo Glenn! U found one of my favorite birds of North America! This is the famous Whip-or Will….not even sure if I’m spelling that right. Known for it’s call at night.My son found one of these ladies who’d laid 2 eggs on a wood-chip play ground He gaurded it like a bulldog until she was able to move the hatched babies to a safer location.SOOO hard to spot they blend so perfectly!
Thanks Carla, I was hoping you’d know. If I didn’t notice the tail, I would have missed the bird altogether!Grazie Signorina!
Pleased and honored, thanks POP’s!
Neat shot Glenn, Congrats on the feature.
Thank you Kind Lady!
I think we call this a Nightjar in England. A very interesting bird that silently ‘hawks’ at night giving rise to the myth that it steals milk from goats! :-))
Howdy John, not 100% sure, but I do know they are in the Nightjar family! Found out they have been used in literature like HP Lovecraft and other, and the some Native American Tribes believe the sound they emit means death!!! Poor thing…..
Nice one Glenn.
Much appreciated Carl!

Hello Donna and thanks! I thought it was a lump on a branch, but the tail shape was odd, so I investigated and lo and behold, a bird. Being nocturnal as well as migratory, I guess all he wanted was some ZZZs.
Wonderful work !!! Bravo!!!Your host, DebApril 8, 2012
