I still remember their terrifying calls during early night and evening twilight time. Their voice is very strange. They mostly seat on ground and hide in dried leafs.
Ashish, it's actually a very lazy nightjar. They don't catch things on the wing, instead they sit on a branch and wait for a mouse or skink to run underneath, and then pounce on it.
Feels like a miniature Owl...very nice bird..!!
thanks JesseMorton, we often get them around our place, I had to rescue one las year that was stuck in a fence
awesome looking creature!
