Long-tailed Potoo 121115 Nyctibius aethereus

This Long-tailed Potoo was roosting along a forest track between Atta and Surama, Guyana. Before I went to Guyana I read an article on this species that suggested the best field mark is the curled up end to feathers on the back and wings and this bird shows it well. The curled edges look like peeling bark making the bird fit in perfectly with its environment.
