Some nightmares have beaks.
Potoos or Patoo birds, are sometimes called Poor-me-ones, after their haunting calls & are related to the nightjars & frogmouths. These are nocturnal insectivores which lack the bristles around the mouth found in the true nightjars. They hunt from a perch like a shrike or flycatcher. During the day they perch upright on tree stumps, camouflaged to look like part of the stump. The single spotted egg is laid directly on the top of a stump.

wild turkey One morning when I lived in The Black Hills I woke up to the sound of wild turkeys...they sounded like gurgling water going over the rocks in Spring Creek by the house. I had to go to the window to see what was making that noise. It was a soft and musical noise, definitely not the loud gobble gobble you would expect.
