A Nighthawk



We saw this frog faced bird on our hike today. It was quite camouflaged and unconcerned by us. About the size of a robin. Remember that little bird that was trying to fly in our windows? I identified it as a Western Flycatcher.

He's cute. Maybe it's the little bill.
If I'm not mistaken, they can open their mouths quite wide, right?

Well this one was keeping its mouth shut and was oddly calm, but I think around sunset they are the birds we used to call "goodnight birds" because they fly around in wild sweeps making a loud and odd call.

So will you do a cartoon called Night Hawk?
