Fiery-necked Nightjar [pectoralis]

Caprimulgus pectoralis [pectoralis] (= Caprimulgus pectoralis pectoralis) Cuvier, GLCFD 1816

The fiery-necked nightjar is a species of nightjar in the family Caprimulgidae, which occurs in Africa south of the equator. Its distinctive and frequently uttered call is rendered as 'good-lord-deliver-us'. It is replaced in the tropics by a near relative, the black-shouldered nightjar. In addition to the latter, it forms a species complex with the Montane and Ruwenzori nightjars. Source: Wikipedia
