Standard Winged Nightjar in flight. Liberia

Hello

Keith Fey on assingnment in Liberia, West Africa. I am new to this forum, and get to visit some of the last wildreness areas in Africa. Yesterday when at the foothills of the Wologizi Mountains in Lofa County, Liberia, I filmed this superb Standard Winged Nightjar male in breeding plumage and in flight which I know many of you will enjoy.

Regards
Keitho

Welcome to BF and what a bird! How long do the males retain the 'standards'?

Welcome to BF, Keith and thanks. Had to pore over the photo to work out what was going on! That's superb.

Nice one!!.
Saw these upriver in The Gambia (Kiang West) including a nice standard-sporting male but never even got close to getting an image, well done!!

Reini has a nice image of a perched bird in her BF gallery (see the database image).
