It is ever more difficult to find the birds that blend so well with nature in the heath forest



Nightjar           Öösorr         Caprimulgus europaeus


Finding the birds that blend so well in nature  has become more difficult with the movable camera already since several days.

The male covers the juveniles during daytime and keeps busy with them. Where is the female?

Quite likely she lays a second clutch of eggs nearby. If  the camera operator finds the female in the vicinity there is reason to keep the camera here.

The male with the juveniles

We recognize the male bird by his white wing streak and white is also visible in the tail feathers of the bird.

The juveniles already do flying excercises
