Large-tailed Nightjar spotted at Sungei Buloh

 

This Large-tailed Nightjar was spotted on one of the trees in Sungei Buloh. As it’s name suggests, Nightjar is active at night. It makes a loud monotonous “tolk tolk” sound and it’s more often heard than seen. It feeds on moths, beetles and other insects. In the day, it usually sits motionlessly on tree branches like the one shown here.
