Common Pottoo:





Despite its name - It's not common at all: this bird sleeps during the day and hunts at night. Normally not noticeable when it's perched on the trunk of the tree because he'll look just like another branch!

Neat. Looks a lot like our native nighthawks and whip-poor-wills that also are
nightime birds.
