Eastern Whip-poor-will

Antrostomus vociferus (Wilson, A, 1812)

The Eastern Whip-poor-will, (Antrostomus vociferus), is a medium-sized (22–27 cm) nightjar bird from North and Central America. The whip-poor-will is commonly heard within its range, but less often seen because of its superior camouflage. It is named onomatopoeically after its song. Source: Wikipedia
