Wow! I was looking for a bird myself and I found your bird!!!!

It is a Common Nighthawk. It doesn't build a nest but nests right on the ground so your bird could possibly be nesting or just resting.

Check out these two sites!!



I'm so excited about finding it for you! hope you can look for some on your own next time, it's a lot of fun. You can use the All About Birds web site.

I'm thinking it is a shorebird. It could possibly be a Purple Sandpiper but they have a more yellow beak and legs. It looks young too.

here is a link to picture of juvenile purple sandpiper:


you can also call your local wildlife care center or local Audubon society

What part of the country is your school in ? Was the bird moving about ? Eating ? Drinking ? Able to fly ?
