    • yes it isthe Owlet night jar part of a longer call that it often uses when one is squeaking close to its hollow in daylight.

    • Definetly an Australian owlet-nightjar call. This call is is common at night and is not specific to the daytime. It is one of their 4-5 common call types.

  1. I have heard this call many times at our property on the Clarence River in northern NSW and have always called it an owlet nightjar. I probably learned it from a BOCA recording. I have heard this call both day and night.
