Here’s the nightjar chick

by Matthew Cobb

Here it is. It’s very young, so hard to see. But it is right in the middle, which is where you’d expect it to be, unless @SensoryEcology had cunningly cropped the photo…

I trust all those maths folk back at the -1/12 post won’t say *this* post is all wrong.

    I still can’t see it, but I am getting pretty blind. But I think I found the moth.

    …and we’re supposed to take your word that that’s an actual nightjar?

    Sorry, but I’m philosophically inclined to conclude that the nightjar is actually in the upper left corner, and that it’s a duck, because Plato contra Descartes. So there!

      But does it float?

        Does it matter? Burn it anyway! Roast duck for everybody!

          even if it has a wart?

            That’s the best part. Dibs on the wart!

    I got it! First one for me. I spotted the relatively large beak.

    If you look harder, you can see Jesus.

      Hmm…I don’t see any dog butts there — not even any toast or any of his other favorite hiding places. You sure he’s really there?

    Bah! Nightjars. Can’t we have some nice parrots? Stephen’s Idaho swans are great. Anything but more of these danged nightjars. They’re damaging my self esteem.

    Oh sage, where is the riddle,
    if it’s always in the middle?
    Could such nightjar
    spotted from afar
    hold away one’s piddle?

    I think that Matthew’s just making these up to mess with our minds..
