The nightjars and their allies are amongst the most difficult of all birds to identify. Being strictly nocturnal and cryptically patterned in shades of brown, it is often necessary to rely on size, shape, habitat and voice to safely identify a species. By far the largest family in the world, this is the first book to comprehensively cover this popular group of birds. As voice is so important in nightjar identification, a CD with the voices of 108 species has also been published.
