Glad you told us it is a common night hawk as it is uncommonly beautiful!
That is a beauty. :) I think we have it, but it is in the forest and very hard to spot. Good to be two carying all stuff you want to bring. I am alone and want to bring tons of equipment. Today I will try out a bag on wheels. :)
that is one beautiful bird!Dazy Daisy
That is a great photo. Very similar to our Spotted Nightjar in Australia.
I've never seen a Nighthawk before, what a beautiful bird! Very interesting eyes - I assume to allow it to see peripherally without moving it's head.
Wow!! Awesome capture.
wow, the beautiful pattern of the feathers..
You take such marvelous photos! I will have to look this little guy up. Not sure we have Night Hawks in our area. Now I am curious about their range.
Great shot of a cool bird. We don't have Nighthawks here - though we should be getting some Nightjars soon.
What a very interesting bird, great shot!
Is that the perfect photo, or what? All I can say is, wow!
I've awarded you a Sunshine Award. Check the details on my blog and feel free to pass it on. ~ks
wow that is such a beautiful bird :) thanks for sharing!u may view mine here
We have those during summer here in northern Nevada. I love watching them swoop and dive in the evening. They are amazing aerialists.
Oh my, such a wonderful portrait!
I hope your hawk doesn't steal people's babies. It was on our TV, a bird photographer was "keeping" his nestlings for weeks, one horrifying moment, a hawk swoop down and took one of the babies. It was all on TV. My heart ached.My dad and his 8 brothers and his many many cousins were all named after birds. The older ones have majestic birds, I think dad was a hawk. His youngest, was something like a sparrow.
Very attractive. I love those bird pictures - I could never get that close with my camera.
Perfect photo Jill, and I Must say I love your header pic.All the bestGuyRegina In Pictures
Oh, what a LOVELY bird! WOW!
I haven't seen a nighthawk before either. It is a beautiful bird and it seems to be enjoying the day too.
Absolutely superb shots, especially the second one. Hung on a wall I could stare at it for hours.
What a stunning bird! And your photo! Breathless. I'm going to go look this bird up. I've never seen one.
Sorry I'm commenting late but this is a great Wordless Wednesday!
Looks pretty shot of the bird. happy SOOC Sunday.
