Caprimulgus vexillarius   Pennant-winged Nightjar  Wimpelvlerknaguil
Pennant-winged Nightjar
Welgevonden Game Reserve, Nov 2012

A rare, erratic summer visitor from the tropics. Recorded widely but very sparsely, and seemingly present in some years but not others. Males with pennants have been recorded during Oct-Dec and it possibly breeds here but thus far has not been recorded doing so.
