Night Hawks are very fascinating birds. I had the pleasure of seeing one sitting down in the needles amidst the pine trees one day. He was very well camouflaged in the midst of the dead pine needles.Their eyes are so black that they look as if they’re nothing more than black holes. I had always seen these birds flying at night, but that had been the first time I had actually seen one up close. I love the whooshing sound they make while diving, and their little chirping noise grows on you. If you are a bird watcher, I would suggest you study this one.
