It is always a pleasurable moment when a new species is found from the green valley of Damodar River, Barddhaman, West Bengal. The river banks of both sides are enriched with thick bamboo vegetation which is the best habitat for this nightjar. It is difficult to spot because of its camouflage feathers with dead leaves.
