2012-05-05 Estero Palo Verde (El Tortugario - col), Mexico
Adult male. Common Pauraque has longer tail with white along the tail. Common Nighthawk has pointed wing tip and the white primary patch closer to base of primaries. Male because of the strong colored markings. Flushed by Igor while we tried to get pictures of a Zone-tailed Hawk.
