Where to Watch Birds in Yorkshire
Nightjars' A Guide to the Nightjars and Related NightbirdsNightjars' A Guide to the Nightjars and Related Nightbirds
Nigel Cleere, illustrated by Dave Nurney
"...this is not just another book about Nightjars, it's the book about Nightjars. "Western Birds
Sighting a nightjar or nighthawk in the gloaming is an experience much sought-after by every birder;but these relatively common,insectivorous and crepuscular birds are but representatives of an order that comprises 119 species in five families,and found on every continent except Antartica.The order embraces the Oilbird, the potoos, the frog-mouths and owlet-nightjars as well as the more familiar nightjars.Indeed, so familiar are two of the species in North America that their English names reflect their presence in the minds of common folk, whip-poor-will and Chuck-will's-widow.This meticulously researched book is the first to describe in detail every species of the nightjar order.
