A post by Nature Photographer Simon d’Entremont on his Facebook page is attracting lots of attention – and envy amongst bird-watchers

Says Simon:

One of the rarest and most unusual birds I’ll ever get to photograph in Nova Scotia. The last recorded sighting of this bird in the province was 10 years ago. He’s sleeping here, waiting for nightfall to go out and eat flies. A relative of the Common Nighthawk, it also has an unusual name. Thanks to Jason Dain for the heads-up!

Fulton Lavender reported a sighting in the Williams Lake Backlands in 2014.

It’s always welcome back!
