The art of camouflage :)


Nightjars are mysterious, they nest on the ground, have tiny feet and catch prey with their mouth. Seldom seen, they make their presence known through eerie calls starting at dusk and lasting throughout the night. Their camouflage is something else, as seen by this pix and another seen below.


Factoid: Owls are nighjar relatives. :)
