Lesser Nighthawk

🌟 **Spotlight Attraction: The Lesser Nighthawk** 🌟

Join Big Jeep Tours as we adventure into the rugged, wild terrains of Bisbee, Arizona, where the mystique of the night unfolds with the beautiful spectacle of the Lesser Nighthawk. Here's everything you need to know about this majestic creature:

🦅 **Species**: Lesser Nighthawk (Chordeiles acutipennis)


   - Part of the 'nightjar' family, these are nocturnal birds renowned for their dusk and dawn feeding habits.

🌙 **Habitat**: Open desert areas, grasslands, and chaparral.

   - They thrive in our local environment, adding a pinch of natural mystery to our tours.

🐞 **Diet**: Primarily insectivorous.

   - Watch as they skillfully sweep through the air in pursuit of their nightly feast of insects.

🏞️ **Activity**: Most active during twilight hours (crepuscular).

   - Our dusk and dawn tours are ideal for catching a glimpse of these elusive birds in action.

🔎 **Spotting tips**: Look for a medium-sized bird with pointed wings and white patches, flying erratically close to the ground.

🎶 **Call**: A low, throaty trill.

   - Listen closely as our guides help you distinguish the unique call of the Nighthawk from other desert denizens.
