We waited for dusk to fall and Vernon went to the Bare-shanked Screech-owl spot, I'm pretty sure we were no more than a hundred yards from where we had it last year.
The Dusky Nightjar was much more cooperative this year, I think Vernon spotted it with his flashlight; it was silent this year
We mostly jokingly called for an encore. Vernon thought for a minute, and then stopped the bus after a few miles and after a few minutes signaled us to come out of the bus ... Mottled Owl, a lifer
Four nightbirds seen, all were impressed.
