Little Nightjar

Little Nightjar

Caprimulgus parvulus

View in taxonomic table

The Little Nightjar is quite common at our reserve and we quite often find it in the garden hunting insects.

It is a similar size and shape to the rarer Sickle-winged Nightjar with a short tail and size around 18cm.  You sometimes find it perched on tree branches.

It has a cinnamon band on the nape and sometimes white on the throat.
