Not a easy bird to find and this was a big bonus, This Common Potoo had a chick. Amazing bird. I find the name "common" funny because they are not common to find.

Strange- but charming-looking birds. It is difficult to see which is the adult bird, the chick or the dead tree stump, the camouflage is so good. We saw a TV programme a while back, which included a section about a breeding centre for the Potoo and, IIRC, they were proving very difficult to raise in captivity, so seeing an adult with a chick must have been extraordinary lucky. Great photo and maybe a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity so one to treasure. Be sure to save lots of back-up copies!

A really cool bird, but the stick is prettier!  :p :p :p
Really, that is something to be able to see something like that, I am sure. It takes a good eye to even find one, then to be able to get a shot too.

Oh man! I didn't even see the chick, I knew you said it had one, I just didn't grasp it was in that shot.
Very cool, for sure!
Thanks, Peter for pointing that out. :)

Bufflehead that I finally got a shot at, he wasn't swimming away or nothin'... :-P
I shot him a couple of years ago, I bet he's waiting on me right now to take his picture, he's probably married by now too...

Yeah, I agree, I still use the 1DmkIV, but I mainly use the 7DmkII, it's lighter. :) Both have their places though, plus that camera is a great back-up.

Go out early in the morning before light, or go out before sunset and watch for movement, if there is an owl around you should have a good possibility of seeing one's silhouette in a tree or atop a telephone pole. It's not always that easy, but that is a good way to see them.
If you do see one, now you know where they frequent, start looking for them, at some point and time you will more than likely see something, now whether or not you get a shot is another thing. :)
I wanted to see one for years after I started shooting digital, when I finally did, all of a sudden I saw the quite a bit, like the flood gates opened, well, a small flood gate... :)
Right now I know where several Barred Owls are and several Short-eared Owls, I haven't seen them but I know where they are, I keep watching, and hopefully I will get them. :)
Hopefully.

Randy
