Even more Mountain Owlet-Nightjar...PAPUA NEW GUINEA (30 June)

Could not resist one more shot of the first Mountain Owlet-Nightjar seen on our first night at Kumul Lodge. I will admit to having a bit of an obsession with nightbirds (especially owls). I like this shot because it reveals its remarkably long whiskers...Papua New Guinea is particularly rich in Owlet-Nightjars, with FIVE species possible on the traditional circuit there!

This is really such a tremendous looking bird and I am glad you shared another image...I could stand to look at a few more of these!
