Most pathetic bird you've never seen but have heard many times before!

Recommended Posts

Sounds just like the title. 

Mine is a Great-Horned Owl.  Side question, do you count it?  I did because it was getting ridiculous! :P

I get Chuck-Wills-Widow every summer, but I don't consider not seeing a nightjar to be too awfully pathetic.

Yes, I count it, along with the Great Horneds I haven't seen either.

EDIT: to correct an errant bird name.  Thanks, @MerMaeve!

I'm trying to think of any that I've heard but have yet to actually see, and I can't think of any!

Oh wait, one time in Missouri I heard a Whip-poor-will. Have never seen one, but seeing a nightjar is not exactly a common thing, anyways.
