Thanx for the reply and photo Jumbo!

The nightjar at Mazhou also sat orientated along the branch and not across.

So experts, may I tick off European Nightjar?

Hi all! Sorted out my bird photos for the first time and was surprised to find 200 species hidden away in my laptop. Anyway, 2 nightjars that I saw last February in Kruger pose a bit of an ID problem. Any ideas?

JoelR,

Hmm, bit of a challenge with those :shock:

Fiery-necked for the second one? (pure guesses here).

Hi Joel.. why couldn't you rather post Warblers? :twisted:

Second one I get the feeling of European Nightjar. :hmz:

I saw this nightjar in April at Pafuri. So from the way it roosts it can only be an European nightjar, right?

Pumbaa, I would say your Nightjar is the European one as that is the one that typically roosts sitting lengthwise on a branch.
