Unnamed spotting


I though it looked like a hawk or eagle. Very big black eyes. Notice the wings


This one was sound on one of my job sites. It was actually in the building. College station Texas. In a new A&M building

Definitely not a raptor. "Very big black eyes", + overall dusty camoflage cryptic coloring tells its a nightjar of some sort. I am not good at species of this group by sight, but I vote Whipporwill...narrower white throat band.

The dark throat makes this an Eastern Whip. A Chuck would have a much buffier throat.

I think my suggestion above is correct because of wings and white neck ring, if so it is not raptor.
