In one hour I’ll reveal the location of the nightjar, so do your looking now.
Reader Peter Green lives in Providence, Rhode Island and is an accomplished photographer of wildlife; you can see his photos at Providence Raptors. But he has an unusual speciality: as he notes “My focus is urban raptors. . . I spot them all over Providence while most others just walk right by (see photo attached).”
Here’s the photo that was attached, of a red-tailed hawk (Buteo jamaicensis):
Peter also has a wonderful series called “Hungry hawk hunting in Providence,” which was his most popular post of the year. It’s comprises 17 photos of people feeding pigeons in the city, giving a hungry red-tail a chance for his own lunch. Go over and see them all, but Peter has also sent me a selection.
