Birds of Namibia
Introduction: European nightjars (Caprimulgus europaeus) can be observed mainly in trees at night in a woodland and savannah type habitat, including mopane and acacia trees, watercourses, gardens and plantations. They occasionally roost on the ground but usually in trees, perching sideways on a branch.
Diet: Beetles and other flying insects. Hunts on the ground as well for insects usually attracted to dung.
Description: Similar to rufous-cheeked nightjar. Usually silent.
Breeding: European nightjars are extralimital and therefore non-breeders in Namibia.
