Expedition Solala



From January 4th until February 2nd we were in Nechisar National Park to find one of the most mysterious birds “alive”, the Nechisar Nightjar.

Twenty-five years after its’ initial discovery we made an attempt in finding the Nechisar nightjar. Most of you might know this bird, which is one of the most mysterious of them all. This nightjar species was described by one wing recovered from a road kill at Nechisar National Park in 1990. Its’ scientific name is Caprimulgus solala. “Solala” is composed out of two words “sola” – “one” and “ala” – “wing”.
