Long-trained Nightjar (Bacurau-tesoura-gigante)

Hydropsalis forcipata


We were coming back after a day hiking in the forest, when this bird appeared in the middle of the road; It flew and landed on the road so many times. It was dark, so the flash of the camera didn't helped so much, but I could get him flying over me! It was a great meeting after an incredible day, walking in the forest and swimming in natural pools made by beautiful waterfalls! --- Nós estávamos voltando depois de um dia de trilha na mata, quando essa ave apareceu no meio da estrada; Ela voou e pousou na estrada muitas vezes. Estava escuro, então o flash da câmera não ajudou muito, mas eu consegui pegá-la voando sobre mim! Foi um grande encontro após um dia incrível, andando pela floresta e nadando nas piscinas naturais feitas por belas cachoeiras.
