Malaysian Eared Nightjar Lyncornis temminckii   - In flight
Malaysian Eared Nightjar
Photographer : © M A Muin
Location :Nibong Tebal, Pulau Pinang, Malaysia
Date : 26 March 2012
English synonyms:Malaysian Eared-Nightjar, Malaysian Nightjar, Lesser Eared Nightjar, Lesser Eared-Nightjar
Bird Family :Eurostopodidae - Eared Nightjars
Red Data Status :Least Concern
Remarks :Identified partly on call: The call Tut, we, wooo... is quite similar to Great Eared Nightjar Eurostopodus macrotis but first note distinct and loud compared to Great Eared which has a soft, indistinct first note. There is also no or less than a second gap between the first and second note. Although the difference between Malaysian and Great Eared note gap is not so distinct, but one can differentiate it if previously heard. I think that would be the best that I could describe it. - MAM
