Little Nightjar is widespread, is common, and occupies open habitats; even so, its life history is relatively poorly known. Although it is clear that some populations are migratory, the seasonality of its occurrence still is not well documented in many regions; this is a fundamental aspect of its natural history that merits much more attention. There also is little or no information on such topics as territoriality and population density, dispersal, life span and survivorship, and molts for Little Nightjar.
