Caprimulgus pectoralis   Fiery-necked Nightjar  Afrikaanse Naguil
Fiery-necked Nightjar
Leeupoort, Sep 2008

A breeding resident. The commonest nightjar in the Waterberg, occurring in all types of woodland but especially in areas where there is a thick carpet of leaf litter covering the ground. Mostly detected from its characteristic nocturnal "good-lord-deliver-us" call - it calls year-round but with greatest frequency during March-May.
