Prospect Evewatch , from the Nethermead

Tonight climaxed a great day for late August. On a hunch for a target species, 5 COMMON NIGHTHAWKS showed up  ,first one seen over the southern Midwood became 5 hunting over the treetops of Quaker Ridge, between the cemetery and the Nethermead Bridge. The first bird appeared 7:51 until I left about 8:15 when darkness descended. A great show from my sitting within the Nethermead triangle, especially the bright Venus with Nighthawks flying near the planet's illumination.The yearly tradition continues.

For your information , for the next two weeks, when winds are north, go have a picnic and watch nighthawks.
