The best bird of my Meadow lake Guest Ranch trip, by far, was a Common Poorwill. An outing at 10:30pm to find out if I could find one of these elusive and very secretive nocturnal birds. Sure enough, just as I came down the hill into the grasslands of the Fraser canyon, I saw the eye-shine of what was my target bird. There are only a couple of sightings at the very northern reaches of its range so I was very excited to see him on the road. The fog lights on the truck, the Lumix 300 bridge camera, with its ability to capture tons of light and this very cooperative nightjar allowed for this rare photo. Thank you to Shelagh, Brian, Dwight and Cynthia for a wonderful experience.
