Greater Antillean Nightjar range

The Greater Antillean Nightjar is found on the islands of Cuba, Haiti and the Dominican Republic. This nightjar is most often found on the forest floor, when it is not hunting for insects. It is a stationary bird and is easy to approach because it depends on its camouglage plumage colours to protect its presence.
