      Caprimulgidae - Nightjars

    The Caprimulgidae family includes 92 species of birds. Nightjars are medium-sized birds with short legs, small feet, long wings, and short bills. They are nocturnal and eat insects.

    Some species in this family perch along the length of a tree branch in the same way cats stretch out on a branch. This helps conceal them from predators when they are sleeping during the day.

    Nightjars are very hard to spot because their plumage looks like tree bark and leaf litter!

    Nightjars are also known as goatsuckers. It was once thought that they used their wide mouths to milk goats. In fact, the word for goat-milker in Latin is Caprimulgus.. ...

     ... The song of the Spotted Nightjar is a rising series of notes ending in a bubbly chuckle. The first note of the phrase is drawn out, followed by a series of repeated notes rising in pitch and then the final notes are a rapid cluster of bubbly disyllabic sounds. Spotted Nightjars make a number of other sounds including hissing sounds when threatened and deep churring alarm calls. 

     The Spotted Nightjar (Eurostopodus argus) is found mostly in the drier regions of the Australia, inhabiting open woodland, grassland, mallee and arid shrubland throughout much of the continent. This species is mostly absent east of the Great Dividing Range along the coasts of eastern Australia.

    A nocturnal species, Spotted Nightjars usually spend the day roosting on the ground, superbly camouflaged amongst leaf litter and dry undergrowth. They can often be seen and heard just after dusk. ...

     The spotted nightjar or spotted eared-nightjar (Eurostopodus argus) is a species of nightjar in the family Caprimulgidae. It inhabits much of mainland Australia and has also been found in several Indonesian islands. Its natural habitats are open forests and woodlands, scrub, spinifex and tussock grassland, savannah woodland and mangroves.[2]

    Spotted nightjars are larger and more colorful than other species of nightjar, and are known for their intricately flecked plumage patterns which allow them to camouflage well against the ground. Adult spotted nightjar have large white spots on four outer primary feathers, lacking the white tail markings of the more tropical large-tailed nightjar.

    Spotted nightjars are nocturnal and insectivorous, and primarily roost and on the ground, rarely perching in trees. They tend to both eat and drink while in flight, skimming along the surface of water holes in order to do so.


    The spotted nightjar was first described by Ernst Hartert in 1892.[2] The order Caprimulgiformes includes four families; oilbirds, frogmouths, potoos, and the nightjars. The nightjars are split into two subfamilies, Chordelinae (American nighthawks) and Caprimulginae (typical nightjars).[3] Within the Caprimulginae, the genus Eurostopodus (the eared nightjars) consists of seven extant species, including Eurostopodus argus.[4] ...
