Of coursly it’s a Nighthawk. Must be. Who would ever deny it. As soon as I saw the video, I knew: “Man, it’s a Nighthawk!” Actually it’s a Nighthawk subspecies, called: “The Halloween Nighthawk”, that’s the ones who wear a reptilian mask when celebrating their birdy Halloween.

Hey maybe it is a reptile trying to look like a night hawk, or,
It is an owl trying to look like a night hawk, or,
It is a dragon trying to look like a night hawk.

Yes, ladies and gentlemen, it walks, it talks, it'll even crawl on its belly like a reptile! You kids really crack me up.

Once you've seen a night hawk up close, held it, fed it, watched it heal and released back into the wild, you do tend to know what they look like, but hey, what do I know right? Maybe it is bigfoot's pet dragon-reptile-owl.

Maybe the name is what is throwing you guys off, Night Hawk, and you are thinking of a Hawk. Well a night hawk is not really a type of hawk at all. It is a Nightjar, a whooperwil, a bug catcher. You've probably seen them flying around street lights at night thinking they were big bats.

Either way, you've provided me with some much needed laughter.

E.T.

Don´t worry about that, the bird was released into the wild, is explained at the end of the video.

I love this bird, and it most likely is a baby nighthawk which hasn't fully developed its mouth yet, as most baby birds tend to have a softer beak area.

Sure is cute, and birds are direct decedents of Dinosaurs, even Raptors had feathers. Of course they have lizard like qualities, scales evident on their legs.

Reverse genetic engineering brings out dinosaur traits in chickens.

www.scientificblogging.com...

Researchers from Harvard Medical School and Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center have captured and sequenced tiny pieces of collagen protein from a 68 million-year-old Tyrannosaurus rex. The protein fragments—seven in all—appear to most closely match amino acid sequences found in collagen of present day chickens.

Good to know that they released the little guy, good for them, good for the little guy.

Good first post, kazike! A star for you.

YouAreDreaming, I've read those papers and I think there was a NatGeo or Discovery Science show on the subject as well. You know what that means, right? Dinasaurs taste like chicken! Maybe we can get KFC to sponsor the research.

Definitely a nighthawk. Those birds you see over parking lots, flying around snatching insects at night and making buzzing sounds as they dive, are nighthawks. There are several kinds.

Goatsuckers Add Mystery and Song to the Night

Be sure to click on the link in the text for the picture. Some of them have what appear to be whiskers.

If you walk through an area with heavy trees in the day time, you may find one roosting in the branches.

A new species? Perhaps this is because of the galactic alignment. Edgar Cayce over at divinecosmos.com says that with the alignment the frequencies that bind everything around it will change and hence new life will emerge. Maybe this is a new species in result to the occurance which is increasing it's level as we head towards 2012. This could be just the beginning of a new evolution.

Stupid us...! But now I have to admit you were right. After some research, it turned out to be an obvious hoax. So it WAS a Nighthawk.

We may close this thread now.

It looks a lot like what we aussies call a 'tawny frogmmouth' or Podargus strigoides. It's a type of owl-like bird we get over here.

For the life of me I can't understand how people can have the answer to the question given within the first five posts and then 20 posts later we have people speculating that this is evidence of a new evolutionary leap due to gallactic alignments in conjunction with 2012.

Good grief people!
I have thought it is a little cliche to use the website motto, but seriously people, give it a shot.

I believe this particular bird is probably the "common nighthawk" and not the "lesser nighthawk."

Just curious how do you explain the marked difference in beak structure between the unknown bird and a nighthawk?

What the video is saying is that the people think they saw a witch. but when they show the "nighthawk" the reporter is saying that people "could have" seen this type of "ave" (bird) which is not well know and think it is a "bruja" (witch).

then she says the bird was being taken to a facility in montery to rehibilitate and then they would release it back into the wild.

the people however remain convinced that it was not a bird at all, it was too big.

No one said it was a hoax. A hoax implies a malicious intent to deceive. No one is claiming that.

What do you think it is?

Eaganthorn, I think Brontosaurus burgers are the next big thing... the Flintstones had it right, grow em' big and delicious!

Yum.

Even if this is a nighthawk, there is still something strange going on here! In folklore, the nighthawk were believed to suck the milk from goats, earning the, the name "goatsuckers." That's right folks...we have a bonafide Chupacabra caught on film!

They said it is a rare type of owl and that they didnt keep it, they let it free at a nearby field.
