The Little Nightjar (Caprimulgus parvulus) is a species of nightjar in the Caprimulgidae family. It is found in woodland and other semi-open habitats in eastern, central and southern Brazil, eastern Peru, eastern and northern Bolivia, Paraguay, Uruguay and northern Argentina. It is fairly common in most of its range. Currently considered monotypic, it has often included the Todd's Nightjar (C. heterurus) of northern South America as a subspecies.
