Fiery-necked Nightjar

Caprimulgus pectoralis Cuvier, 1816

The Fiery-necked Nightjar (Caprimulgus pectoralis) is a species of nightjar in the Caprimulgidae family, which occurs in Africa south of the equator. It ranges from coastal Kenya southwards to the southern regions of Tanzania, the D.R.C. and Angola, to Malawi, Mozambique, Botswana, Namibia, South Africa, Swaziland, Zambia, and Zimbabwe. Its distinctive and frequently uttered call is rendered as 'good-lord-deliver-us'. Its near relative, the Black-shouldered Nightjar, replaces it in the tropics. Source: Wikipedia
