Great capture Linda!
Thank Steve. I was fortunate to even see these pretty birds. They are so well camouflaged that it would be easy to walk right past them!
Sleepy lil fella, a beauty!
Thanks Debbie. I think they’re absolutely gorgeous. I was fortunate to get these photos of them :)
It is amazing how these nighthawk type birds can camoflage themselves so well.. Great shots, Linda.
Thanks Bob. They’re really difficult to spot on the ground even when you know they’re there. It was a special treat to see them!
Gorgeous Linda! Hope you are having a great time!
Thank you Cindy. I wish you could see these birds up close so that you could see how truly beautiful they are. I’m having a fabulous time! Thanks for asking. :)
What an interesting bird. Nice close-ups, Linda.
Thanks Scott. My photos do not begin to convey the beauty of the plumage or how sweet and vulnerable these birds look sleeping on the ground. It was a treat to see these beauties!
Super photos Linda! They are like our Nightjars, odd birds, beautiful plumage :-)
Thanks Lisa. Yes, they are nightjars, and they are gorgeous. I was so fortunate to see them. I was fortunate to be there with Marsha Kraus Fulton, who knows where they are. Thanks to Marsha!!
Great images really showing their cryptic coloration!
Thanks Nancy. Until you see them in person you really can’t see how gorgeous the coloration is up close. These are beautiful birds!!
Awesome captures! I don’t even know how your found this cool bird with its fabulouos camouflage colors. I would love to see one. Terrific shots!
Thank you Julie. I would never have found them without the help of Marsha Kraus Fulton, who is familiar with the area. You would probably step on one before you saw it, as their camouflage is amazing. I feel incredibly privileged to have seen them. :)
WOW!! These are hard to find!! Great work!
Thank you Cindy. I was so fortunate to meet a Twitter/Facebook friend who is familiar with the area. I assure you that I would never have found them without Marsha’s assistance!
Great photos! It’s good to have you at the festival (I’ve been helping with registration). Have fun the restof the weekend.)
Thanks Kay. I enjoyed meeting you at registration. I’m having a fabulous time. This is a wonderful festival with wonderful people and wonderful birds!!
