Nightjars @ home

Nightjars are medium-sized nocturnal or crepuscular birds with long wings, short legs and very short bills.

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.
