Actually i think i may have figured this out. I believe this is a "Chuck-willís-widows" cousin to the
Whip-poor-will, and I don't think it is a baby bird, but an adult.

From what I have read this is a "Chuck-willís-widows". The white feather on the tail mean he is a male bird. I hear these birds singing all the time at night, but rarely do you see one in the day time.
