    i took my kids 5 and 2 for a ride this afternoon in the woods on our farm.it was cool and damp from last nights rain.we were riding on the trail and there are all kinds of dead pine and oak limbs that have fallen on the ground.i have no idea how i saw this riding along but i did.i took this picture 10ft away around 2pm.these are rarely seen and we saw 2.so cool.

    this is a chuck-will's widow-a type of nightjar,like whip-poor-wills.But not just one,there are two.
