About The Least Pauraque

Siphonorhis brewsteri is found in central and west Dominican Republic (particularly on the north slope of the Sierra de Baoruco and between Oviedo and Pedernales), Haiti (between Arcahaie and Montruis north of Port-au-Prince) and, at least formerly, was numerous on Ile de la Gonâve (Raffaele et al. 1998). It is thought to be generally rare, although it can be locally common and is possibly under-recorded (Cleere and Nurney 1998, Raffaele et al. 1998). Surveys at Las Cruces, Sierra de Bahoruco, in March 1996 revealed 4.5 birds/km2, essentially unchanged from 4.8 birds/km2 during 1976 surveys in the same area.

Sites Where Observed

Not 100% sure of the ID. The nightjar with a short tail was briefly seen flying across the road in some dry scrubby habitat.
