Sorry, no etymologies found.
In quick succession we see a Mozambique nightjar with lunatic orange eyes and a pennant-winged nightjar with weird gloved extensions to the trailing edges of its wings, and then suddenly there is another bird lifting too late from the warm track in front of the car and flying at us rather than away.
Others, such as the bronze-winged cursor (Cursorius chalcopterus), Senegal plover (Vanellus lugubris), fiery-necked nightjar (Caprimulgus pectoralis), and pennant-winged nightjar (Macrodipteryx vexillaria) rely on fires to provide breeding habitat.
