Nightjar Peru (Manu-road - Amazon)

Hi all,

New mystery bird.
This time a nightjar.
Seen at Amazonia Lodge in Peru (600-700m altitude).
I have no flight pictures, but no markings (plain) in the wings or tail. No white seen.

I have an idea, but hope to hear your solutions.

Thx again!!

Greetings,
Lennaert Steen

I cannot help on this one, sorry, I have no books that covers the nightjars of this region. At least I can bump it up for others to notice

peruvian nightjars are well beyond my expertise, but how about ladder-tailed??
