Birds of Panama - large bird
The Common Potoo, Grey Potoo,
Lesser Potoo or Poor-me-one
(Nyctibius griseus), breeds in
tropical Central and South America
from Nicaragua to northern Argentina
and northern Uruguay. This nocturnal
insectivore hunts from a perch like
a shrike or flycatcher. During the
day it perches upright on a tree
stump, and is completely invisible,
looking like part of the stump
because it stays so completely still
as it perches .
