Genus Macrodipteryx


Standard-winged Nightjar - It is found in dry savannah habitats, with some scrub. No nest is made; the two elongated and elliptical eggs are placed upon the bare ground.


Pennant-winged Nightjar - Their preferred habitat south of the equator is plateau woodlands, especially Miombo, where they are partial to stony or boulder-strewn hillsides. They are observed as bi-annual and social passage migrants along the Kenyan Rift Valley and Lake Victoria regions, and spend the non-breeding season in subtropical savanna from Nigeria to Sudan.
