Ojos Nocturnos... by HieronyusBerruecos Ojos Nocturnos... by HieronyusBerruecos
Nyctibius jamaicesis

The Spectral Potoo stare into the night...

"It also receives the vulgar name of GHOST, because the jungle people believe it´s a sorrowful soul... this gets more emphasized by its silhouette, the characteristic silent fly and its night singing that resembles a chain of dreadful lamentations.... Hearing this in a full moon night in the silence of the forest, most certainly cause the greatest fear of all"

Miguel Alvarez del Toro “Birds from Chiapas” 1980

El Nyctibio Ibijau espectral, observa desde su rama en la noche...

“El ave por nombre jojú, lechuza llorona o bienparado… también recibe el nombre vulgar de Fantasma porque según los campesinos es un alma en pena, lo que es mas acentuado por su silueta, el vuelo silencioso y su canto nocturno que mas parece una serie de lamentos, que escuchados en una noche de luna en el silencio del campo ciertamente que causan gran espanto”

Miguel Alvarez del Toro “Las Aves de Chiapas” 1980

That face... for some reason, it reminds me of the 'dramatic chipmunk' video. XD

I can tell… Its very scary… Maybe I prefer hearing a “Llorona (Banshee)” in the night… It really sound like someone being strangled in the most horrific way, many times!… :fuzzydemon::fuzzydemon::fuzzydemon:...
