Indian Jungle Nightjar

Caprimulgus indicus Latham, 1790

The Jungle Nightjar (Caprimulgus indicus) is a species of nightjar found in India and Sri Lanka. It is found mainly on the edge of forests where it is seen or heard at dusk. The taxonomy of this and related nightjars is complex and a range of treatments have been followed that cover this and several other nightjars in the Asian region. It was formerly called the Grey Nightjar or Indian Jungle Nightjar and sometimes included the East Asian Grey Nightjar (C. jotaka) as a subspecies. Source: Wikipedia
