Heksie, you're so close. It is seen at Punda, but it's not a fiery Nightjar!

Sorry Heksie, you're on your own - I'm not allowed on this quiz ... IB kicked me off years ago. :wall:

A VERY WARM WELCOME TO YOU, LVES PRIESTLY; I TRUST WE'LL BE SEEING YOU AROUND THE QUIZZES MORE? :dance: :dance: :dance:

Sorry Heksie, you're a day late and a couple of Rands short. LvesPriestly is correct, the Pennant-winged Nightjar is the rarity I was thinking of. Only found near Punda, around dusk and at night. We were able to tick this one off last November. They remind you of a fancy Kite with streamers.

Great lvspriestly :clap:

Isn't it by the tip of their tails?
The small spotted has a black tip and the large spotted a brown/beige tip?
