here is what she looks like.....

I am not sure if she is sitting on eggs, or just in the tiny bit of shade that dinky tree provides.  But she didn't move a muscle - just squinted her eyes at me when I asked her if she was dead.  Today is the first day I have seen her there.  I will be interested to see if she is still there tomorrow.


Can anyone tell me what kind of bird it is????

oh, looks like Shelly guessed it right --- it's a common nighthawk

You should put up a couple bird feeders. I did and have been getting all kinds of finches, larks, blackbirds, woodpeckers, grosbeaks, sparrows, swallows, etc.

I have a bird guide that I "borrowed" from my parents that is over half a century old, but it is still fairly accurate. It is kind of fun in a nerdy way to figure out what they all are and try to get photos before they fly away.
