It seems this bird is a nighthawk. A quick search online and the info and photos sure do seem to match. Thanks Gaia Gardener.
I read they are nocturnal. No wonder it was so sleepy at 3 pm. What a treat to see this bird up close. I hope to see one flying some day. It certainly felt safe in my garden.
Hello. I'm still resettling after being gone for awhile.
Photos of our recent trip are still coming.
In the mean time, I captured these photos of a sleepy bird on our clothes line post Thursday afternoon. I think it may be a juvenile, but a juvenile what?
It barely moved while I slooooowly walked around the garden to get its photo from each side and as straight on as possible. If I kept quiet, it would close its eyes and sleep.
Do you have any idea about what it is? I did not see it leave so I have no idea how it flies.
