Birds of Namibia

Distribution: Absent from north-east Namibia and the driest parts of the Namib Desert. Widespread throughout the rest of the country.
Diet: Forages at night around bright neon lights to catch insects aerially. Also catches prey over rocks and at low-tide on beaches.
Description: Brown head and upper parts, square, plain brown, forked tail.
Breeding: Females usually lay 2 or 3 eggs between September and December in a mud pellet cup lined with feathers and grass.
Size: 12cm. Weight: 22g.
