Observation details

Two individuals were on the ground (not seen) when out of nowehere they flew up simultaneously and went to perch on trees. I was already leaving the area with my bike, at that time when this all happened, and was frightened by their silhouette since they were big. I zoomed my lens to one who was not hidden and immediately recognized this fellow in the photo as a nightjar but didn’t expect them to be this big! Other bird went to a darker area and camouflaged well.
