Video of Owlet-Nightjar during the day

My brother, dad and I are on a trip to Darwin, Litchfield, Mary River/Kakadu and spent the first night at Lake Woods, near Elliott. After we woke up in the morning, dad packed up our van while my brother and I went bird-watching, he went one way and I went another. I was taking a video of some pelicans when I noticed a Wedge-tailed Eagle. It flew over some trees and I went to follow it. I was in the trees when this thing brushed my shoulder and sat on a branch about 5 steps away from me. It turned out to be a little Owlet-Nightjar, a lifer for me. I hope you enjoy the video.
