Along the road we had traveled a couple days before we could hear a large flock of Southern Lapwings calling. I also heard, while they were looking for the owl, a COMMON PAURAQUE call beyond a barn. Eventually we found quite a few, just sitting on the road, along with a 3 WHITE-TAILED NIGHTJARS, and a few Common Potoos. It was also the only time I have ever gone birding with a guard. A security guard from Asa Wright followed us up and down the road in his pick-up truck, protecting us from what threat I don't know and care not to know.
