    Nightjar – isn’t that where you get hand cream from?

    Interesting thing about Kory’s artwork, I find myself studying it to see what he has hidden! The recent episodes bring to mind Mendelssohn, you know, that music you get just before a storm.

    I see a tic-tac-toe board.

    Speaking of noticing things – did anyone notice what happened about 2 weeks ago? No chapter change. We’re still in the middle of Slynderfell.

    The other name for a nightjar is a goatsucker. Just saying.

    At that moment, just when everyone was thinking katydid, we all learned that katydidn’t.

    Those trees are looking pretty ominous.

    From Wiki:
    Nightjars are medium-sized nocturnal or crepuscular birds with long wings, short legs and very short bills. They are sometimes referred to as “GOATSUCKERS” from the ancient folklore that they sucked milk from goats (the Latin for goatsucker is Caprimulgus). Some New World species are named as nighthawks.

    The birds we called nighthawks in Wisconsin used to entertain us by diving from a high altidude to nail a bug of some kind in mid-air. The sound they made when they pulled out of the dive was wonderful to hear.

    “diving from a high altidude to nail a bug”
    Actually a courtship ritual.. but I agree, it is one of the most amazing sounds in Nature..

    … am I the only one thinking that Oggalulu and Flimm have a whole lot in common…? Evil twinsies possibly?

    I prefer Nightjar to Nighthawk — the names we humans call them — and you are right. The sound IS wonderful and amazing.

    Back when goatsucker first entered the story the fact that it was another name for nightjars was mentioned, but didn’t take. They include the common poorwill and the whip-poor-will. Maybe the birds and our goatsucker can work together to help things along.
