We're delighted to have a strong population of strange-tailed tyrants at the reserve. So much so that we've adopted these beautiful and endangered birds as the symbol of the Trust
The Nacunda nighthawk is more often seen in flight than on the ground like nightjars. It has a distinctive call and is often seen in small groups.
It has predominantly white underparts with a darker breastband and noticeable white throat. Upperparts are mainly mottled dark brown and it has a typical nightjar head and eyes.
The underneath of the wing is beautifully patterned with white underwing coverts, mostly grey trailing edge and a white patch near the tips which are black.
