i live in Ireland and at night, after dark there is this bird . i cant get a picture of it, and i have only seen its shilouette for a second, but it has a very distinctive call. it sounds like a goat or a sheep bleating ( i think thats what you call the noise they make). the country name is " Sky goat", but im wondering if anyone can tell me the common name for it. sorry about this not being a photo related question, but i dont know of any other wildlife forums. thanks all

Common night hawk? I'm not sure if they even have those in Ireland, but I had one on the roof of my old apartment and every night it would keep my up with a repetitive and annoying call. It was only at night, so I never saw the actual bird but I learned about it in an ornithology class I had. If you look it up online, you might be able to find audio of the call. Otherwise I would just type in "bird calls" on the internet and see what you find. Good luck!
