Caprimulgidae - Nightjars

Common NighthawkThe Caprimulgidae family includes 92 species of birds. Nightjars are medium-sized birds with short legs, small feet, long wings, and short bills. They are nocturnal and eat insects.

Some species in this family perch along the length of a tree branch in the same way cats stretch out on a branch. This helps conceal them from predators when they are sleeping during the day.

Nightjars are very hard to spot because their plumage looks like tree bark and leaf litter!

Nightjars are also known as goatsuckers. It was once thought that they used their wide mouths to milk goats. In fact, the word for goat-milker in Latin is Caprimulgus.

Nightjars are found all over the world. The whip-poor-will and the common nighthawk are two species found in New Hampshire.
