The Sand-colored Nighthawk is distributed throughout the Amazon Basin. It is found on rocky island, sand bars and sandy beaches on Amazonian rivers and also near marshes. They are often active during the day and tend to form fairly large flocks.
|I have failed for years to get a photo of any nighthawk in flight that was vaguely identifiable but here you can see the white underwings and the black outer primaries and trailing edge if little else.|
