Todd's Nightjar

Setopagis heterura (Todd, 1915)

The Todd's Nightjar (Caprimulgus heterurus) is a species of nightjar in the Caprimulgidae family. It is found in woodland and other semi-open habitats in northern Colombia, Venezuela and Guyana. The alternative name Santa Marta Nightjar after the Santa Marta Mountains is therefore misleading. It is fairly common in most of its range. It has often been included as a subspecies of the Little Nightjar (C. parvulus). The two are visually very similar, but vocally distinctive. Source: Wikipedia
