Common (or Lesser, or Grey) Potoo. The potoo is a member of my favourite family of birds - the caprimulgiformes (nightjars). This one was near the Nicaragua/Costa Rica border. They are nocturnal and spend their day pretending to be an extension of a tree branch, totally motionless, providing an effective defence against predation.
