Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Unique, feline-looking nightjar. Distinct ears and frequently erect posture distinguish it from many other nightjars. Plumage consists of complex shades of browns which can vanish into the background when perched. Noticeably long-tailed in flight. Inhabits forests, forest edges, and fields and plains with some tree cover. Gives a loud “bee-AHWEE!”
