The Great Potoo is a cryptic bird that is well camouflaged; it can even look like an extension of a branch when perched. With the eyes and beak wide open, they look like really strange creatures. Yet their singular form is fascinating. These pictures of a juvenile were taken near Guapiles, on July 2nd, 2017, during a guided birdwatching tour with the Fundación de Rapaces de Costa Rica. We had seen the adult perch on this same area three months ago, during a birdwatching trip with Asociación Ornitológica de Costa Rica, but this time it was not there. Back then, the juvenile was really small and could be seen just barely.
