Cuban Nightjar (Antrostomus cubanensis) used to be known as Cuban Antillean Nightjar but several authorities now consider the bird that occurs in Cuba to be a separate species to the one on Hispaniola. It is a widespread resident though like all nightjars they are not often seen. I haven't knowingly heard it before though that's probably because we've never been to Cuba in the spring and rarely in the summer months. The call is very distinctive though and you can listen to it here. These wonderful photos were taken by bird guide Karlos Ross in Holguin province in the east. Thank you Karlos.
