Body and wings shaped like a nightjar,
Head and beak of a mighty owl,
Brown and white-barred pattern of feathers,
Feeder on insects and meat alike,
He glides through the sky like a hang glider,
And swoops down to take his prey on the wing.
With a big throat like a frog,
And big, all-seeing eyes,
The nightowl can gulp down meat in a flash,
While croaking like a noisy toad.
