Nightjars

by Nigel Cleere, release date 2010-08-30, Nightjars Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Nightjars books, The nightjars and their allies are amongst the most difficult of all birds to identify. Being strictly nocturnal and cryptically patterned in shades of brown, it is often necessary to rely on size, shape, habitat and voice to safely identify a species. The nightjars are by far the largest family in the order and are spread throughout the world. Some species have developed spectacular tails and wing adornments, but the majority are fairly uniform in appearance. They inhabit both forests and deserts and are ground-nesting. Many species are migratory. The forest-dwelling frogmouths of Asia and Australasia and the potoos of Latin America, adopt a less aeiral feeding strategy and nest on open branches or in tree crevices. The unique oilbird of South American nests colonially in caves, and the owlet-nighjars almost exclusively inhabit Australasia. This book fully covers this popular group of birds. The text has been thoroughly researched, both in the museum and in the field, and the plates depict feather-by-feather detail, allowing identification of all species, providing adequate views are obtained. As voice is so important in nightjar identification, an accompanying CD (priced separately) with the voices of many species will be issued simultaneously."

Australian Bird Names

by Ian Fraser, release date 2019-09-02, Australian Bird Names Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Australian Bird Names books, This second edition of Australian Bird Names is a completely updated checklist of Australian birds and the meanings behind their common and scientific names, which may be useful, useless or downright misleading! For each species, the authors examine the many-and-varied common names and full scientific name, with derivation, translation and a guide to pronunciation. Stories behind the name are included, as well as relevant aspects of biology, conservation and history. Original descriptions, translated by the authors, have been sourced for many species. As well as being a book about names, this is a book about the history of the ever-developing understanding of birds, about the people who contributed to this understanding and, most of all, about the birds themselves. This second edition has been revised to follow current taxonomy and understanding of the relationships between families, genera and species. It contains new taxa, updated text and new vagrants and will be interesting reading for anyone with a love of birds, words or the history of Australian biology and bird-watching.

Download The Systematics And Evolution Of The Nightjars And Their Allies Aves Caprimulgiformes books, The modified phylogeny of the New World nightjars was utilized to investigate temporal patterns of diversification, historical biogeography and evolution of habitat choice and migratory behavior. The three New World radiations are for the most part temporally congruent but they show highly independent histories of spatial and ecological diversification that have resulted in divergent patterns of extant species distributions as well as ecology, impacted by multiple independent vicariant events, long-distance dispersal and habitat shifts.
