Sand-colored Nighthawk

Chordeiles rupestris rupestris

 

River island in the Rio Aguarico on the Ecuador(Sucumbíos)-Peru(Loreto) border.

 

Part of a flock of 40 or so birds roosting on driftwood. In Ecuador this species is found only along major rivers in the Amazon basin, though apparently elsewhere in its range it also inhabits marshes.
