I went to this location expressly to look for poorwills - same place as previous observations of this bird on 6 and 22OCT, and 1NOV. One bird this evening, did not sit for photos. Seen on road at 5:55, flew off. I circled around on the road and at 6:08 the bird was again on the road within inches of where I saw it minutes earlier. Head above eyeline pale, (immature ?), neck, shoulders, back, grayish with brown mottling. Primaries appeared "checkered", buff and dark brown. Common Nighthawk larger, does not usually sit so tamely on the road. Perhaps this bird isn't rare here at this time of year, just a lack of observations submitted.
