Abstract

I report the first nesting records for the Puerto Rican Nightjar (Caprimulgus noctitherus) and Antillean Nighthawk (Chordeiles gundlachii) in Maricao Forest, a montane rain forest of western Puerto Rico. The nightjar nested in leaf litter at the edge of a trail parallel to a eucalyptus plantation {Eucalyptus robustd), at an elevation of 620 m. The nighthawk nested on rocky substrate of a trail in the southern slopes of the forest at an elevation of 460 m. These are the highest elevation nesting records reported for these species in Puerto Rico. The nightjar had a clutch of two eggs and the nighthawk one egg; all eggs hatched successfully. The nightjar had an incubation period of 19 d, consistent with the 18-20 d previously reported. /// Informo el primer registro de anidamiento para el guabairo (Caprimulgus noctitherus) y el querequequé (Chordeiles gundlachii) en el bosque de Maricao. Este es un bosque montano que se encuentra en la parte oeste de Puerto Rico. El guabairo anidó en la hojarasca al borde de un trillo en el bosque paralelo a una plantación de Eucalyptus robusta, a una elevación de 620 m. El querequequé anido en un sustrato rocoso de un trillo en la falda sur del bosque a una elevación de 460 m. Estos dos registros constituyen la elevación más alta en donde se han informado a estas especies anidando en Puerto Rico. El guabairo produjo una camada de dos huevos y el quequerequé de uno; todos produjeron polluelos. El guabairo tuvo un periodo de incubación de 19 días lo que es consistente con los 18-20 días, previamente informado.
