The Large-tailed Nightjar in plain sight
Large-tailed Nightjar nesting on open ground, Cempedak Hill, Zone G.
I have been tracking the presence of a Large-tailed Nightjar near the tall Cempedak tree at Zone G. She is of course a perfect camouflage. You cannot actually recognise it immediately because its body and feathers resemble the colours of dead leaves, vegetative matter, wood, stones or just earth. Furthermore it does not utter any sound or call. Whether the bird is going to lay eggs, time will tell. But I'm on the watchout from now on.
