Northern Potoo with a chick
The Potoo relies heavily on its perfect camouflage and one really has to know what to look for, otherwise, you just might walk by past it. Some of the photos were taken a few feet away from this bird, but not too close to make it uncomfortable.

Called a stake bird in other countries, this bird was at the edge of a large pasture at San Antonio. Walked right past it the first time and never saw it! They are relatives of the Pauraques and Owls and quite a combination of both bird families.

You can search for nesting Potoos during March. Fence posts at the edge of forest is a good place to look for them.
