Immature Savannah Nightjar

posted in: Fledgling-Fledging, Species | 1

“Went back to the nesting and roosting site for Savannah Nightjars (Caprimulgus affinis) near my home. The area has had a reprieve from construction and the Savannah Nightjars have grown in number.

“At least eight and possibly up to 12 roosting there currently. Saw two immatures/juveniles today. The place has gradually become overgrown and they may have to find a new place soon.

“One of the immature came out to a small tarred road and allowed me to use the car as hide to watch.

“The immature nightjar is shown above (left). The adult landing in the habitat (above right) shows under side of wing.”
