Owls and Other Nightbirds
Enjoy our slideshow of 46 species of owls and other nightbirds. There are more than 300 species worldwide of owls, nighthawks, nightjars, potoos, frogmouths, and owlet-nightjars, ranging from the High Arctic to the southernmost reaches of every continent except Antarctica…and numerous islands in between. We explore all the different groups and many of their most interesting characteristics in this slideshow. Happy virtual travels! (And for additional virtual travels, check out the new OutBirding with FieldGuides video series from our guides!)

Where’s a great place to see a great variety of owls and other nightbirds in the U.S.?
Our itinerary to Southeast Arizona, titled Arizona Nightbirds & More, focuses on the rich diversity of owls, nightjars, and nighthawks to be found in this state on a short tour of just five days. It’s great fun, and we get to see a great selection of Southeast Arizona’s “daytime” birds as well!
