Through the Nextdoor app, I learned that a Common Poorwill appeared to be enjoying some sun (or a warm engine), out in the open in a suburban parking lot, on the hood of a dark colored car at the Streets of Southglenn mall in Centennial (Arapahoe County, University & Arapahoe cross streets). A photo of the bird, which eventually flew away (and, so, perhaps wasn't either ill or injured), was shared. The photo was taken from *inside* the car, which means the driver was able to approach and enter her car before the bird flew off.
Fall poorwill can be weirdly tolerant of people? I remember one at Cheesman, sleeping next to a beer bottle, that hardly seemed to notice photographers, passerby, and dogs for days.
