It belongs to a group of more terrestrial species, often called chats. The Common Nightingale is slightly larger than the European Robin, at 15--16.5 cm (5.9--6.5 in) length. It is plain brown above except for the reddish tail. It is buff to white below. Sexes are similar. The eastern subspecies L. m. hafizi and L. m. africana have paler upperparts and a stronger face-pattern, including a pale supercilium. It is a migratory insectivorous species breeding in forest and scrub in Europe and south-west Asia, but is not found naturally in the Americas. The distribution is more southerly than the very closely related Thrush Nightingale Luscinia luscinia. It nests on the ground within or next to dense bushes. It winters in southern Africa. At least in the Rhineland (Germany), the breeding habitat of nightingales agrees with a number of geographical parameters.[2] less than 400 m (1300 ft) above mean sea level mean air temperature during the growing season above 14 °C (57 °F) more than 20 days/year on which temperatures exceed 25 °C (77 °F) annual precipitation less than 750mm aridity index lower than 0.35 no closed canopy and English: Singing Nightingale Luscinia megarhynchos Deutsch: Gesang der Nachtigall Luscinia megarhynchos Date 8 May 2009 Source Own work Author Guido Gerding
