Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Well-camouflaged nightbird, usually encountered roosting on gravel beds, rooftops, or roadsides. Sometimes found in small loose flocks when roosting. Fairly well-adapted to urban life in some parts of its range, and can often be found in towns and city edges. Intricately patterned gray-brown with less white than other nightjars; only males have a fairly small white patch on the wing. Most often detected by its distinctive, high-pitched upswept rough “chree” song, repeated over and over.
