It has been a while since I last posted.

Snowy owl form this morning. Not as sharp due to temperature haze

Thanks Dirk, they're very hard to shoot around here, won't sit still for more than a few seconds but I keep trying...

A very interesting bird in the first photo. The incredible sharpness of the fish and the bird on the other. Great!

Mariutz: They are not rare but are extremely difficult to spot do to their camouflage. Below is a more typical image. Notice how small the mouth/beak appear.

Bob,
I'd not seen images of this bird before, but it's obviously a member of the Nightjar family, of which we in Australia have the Tawny Frogmouth.

Great shots including that gaping maw.

Joe: They definitely show similarities in appearance and behavior but I am not sure if biologists biologists would consider them cousins or call it convergent evolution. The Whip-poor-will and the Nighthawk are two more New World birds that have similar appearances and behaviors. Thanks for your comments.

Bob,
Tawny Frogmouths are definitely part of the broader Nightjar genus, and this image more clearly demonstrates the resemblance to your Chuck Will's Widow.

Remarkably able to blend their plumage into the background.
