Blackish Nightjar - Nyctipolus nigrescens Jon King 2012-12-26 Km12, Piste de la Crique Dardanelles, Mana, Saint-Laurent-du-Maroni (French Guiana) (80 m) call, male -

Distance to mic. 8m. Same ‘lek’ as XC122513. Different ‘pink’ calls then ‘song’ from 0.32. At least four individuals (apparently all males) sat 1-5m apart on ground. Long periods of inactivity with some calling, then ‘songs’ associated with much shuffling on ground, some wing raising, occasionally culminating in short chasing flights.
