The Nightjar is classified as Least Concern. Does not qualify for a more at risk category. Widespread and abundant taxa are included in this category.

Savanna Nightjar nests in treeless areas, such as grassland, grassy plain and open woodland. The nest is a simple scrape on the ground, often among stones. One to two eggs are laid, spotted and blotched and highly camouflaged. Both parents incubate the eggs. When threatened, the incubating/brooding adult pretends to be injured as a distraction tactic. Chicks are nidicolous, meaning that they remain in the nest for some time after hatching. Nothing else is known. More

Caprimulgus nightjars are found around the world, and like other nightjars they usually nest on the ground. They are mostly active in the late evening and early morning or at night, and feed predominantly on moths and other large flying insects. Most have small feet, of little use for walking, and their soft plumage is cryptically coloured to resemble bark or leaves. More

Nightjars usually nest on the ground. Nightjars are found around the world. They are mostly active in the late evening and early morning or at night, and feed predominantly on moths and other large flying insects. Most have small feet, of little use for walking, and long pointed wings. Their soft plumage is cryptically coloured to resemble bark or leaves. Some species, unusual for birds, perch along a branch, rather than across it. This helps to conceal them during the day. More

(Chordeilinae) and nightjars (Caprimulginae), is based on several characters, of which the absence of rictal bristles in nighthawks is the most obvious (the rictus is the gape of a bird's mouth). Compared to the nightjars, nighthawks tend to have longer wings and tail and more often have a notched or forked tail, but there are exceptions. More

of owlet nightjar species, and there can be little doubt that the voice is the main means by which these birds communicate with each other. Different species produce characteristic churring, snarling, or whistling sounds that evidently function in defense of territories. The full vocabulary is unknown for most species, but sounds given by some include hissing during threat displays from nest holes. More

The Egyptian nightjar is well adapted to its life in the desert. Its sand coloured feathers are mixed with streaks of brown and black, helping it to blend in amongst the sandy surroundings (3). The underside is much lighter in colour and the male has white dots on its wings. Juvenile Egyptian nightjars have beautifully patterned soft down that helps camouflage them from predators (3). More

europaeus, is the only representative of the nightjar family of birds in most of Europe and temperate Asia. Habitat and distribution It is a late migrant, seldom appearing before the end of April or beginning of May. It occurs throughout northern and central Europe, and winters in Africa, as far south as the Cape. In southern Europe, and the warmer parts of Africa and Asia, it is replaced by other members of the nightjar family. More

Traditionally, nightjars have been divided into two subfamilies: the Caprimulginae, or typical nightjars with about 70 species, and the Chordeilinae, or nighthawks of the New World with about 8 species. The two groups are similar in most respects, but the typical nightjars have rictal bristles, longer bills, and softer plumage. More

name nightjar is sometimes applied to the entire order Caprimulgiformes. (See caprimulgiform.) True nightjars occur almost worldwide in temperate to tropical regions, except for New Zealand and some islands of Oceania. They have protective colouring of gray, brown, or reddish brown. They feed on flying insects that they catch on the wing at night. More

Nightjars are among the most enigmatic birds in North America . Very little is known on basic aspects of their biology, habitat use, and population status due to their cryptically nocturnal lifestyle. In recent years, conservationists and the general public have come to share a general sense that populations of Nightjars are dramatically declining. However, prior to this program, there was no widespread, long term monitoring strategy to gather vital population information. More

Please place Nightjar Survey in the subject line of your email. Existing Nightjar Survey routes are based on shortened segments of USGS Breeding Bird Survey (BBS) routes. Please verify that you can gain access to roads that are embedded within public lands, such as National Wildlife Refuges or state game lands, at night before you choose to register. More

The number of nightjar in Britain was in major decline after the Second World War. But now that we manage our public forests to protect wildlife, numbers appear to be increasing again. More than 50% of Britain's nightjar population now nest in woods where mature trees have been cut down and young trees planted. Nightjars are rarely seen during daylight, but at night when they are 'churring' on the branch of a prominent tree they can be picked out against the night sky. More

Nightjars are nocturnal birds and can be seen hawking for food at dusk and dawn. With pointed wings and a long tails their shape is similar to a kestrel or cuckoo. Their cryptic, grey-brown, mottled, streaked and barred plumage provides ideal camouflage in the daytime. They have an almost supernatural reputation with their silent flight and their mythical ability to steal milk from goats. The first indication that a nightjar is near is usually the male's churring song, rising and falling with a ventriloquial quality. More
