Common Nighthawk festival

In a good sign for tomorrow's birding, COMMON NIGHTHAWKS were on the move tonight as northwest winds prevailed.

7 friends joined me tonight at the southwest corner of the Nethermead and we were not disappointed. A total of 14 Nighthawks entertained us ,some  right over us in good views and as the sun set, reflective light  made the drab birds light up .At one point as the nighthawks chose the hunting fields over the Lullwater,8 birds congregated in a single flock, insects mad birds happy tonight.

Be certain- if you are off- to bird tomorrow for a migration event. Depends on how good it will be.I'm sure my phone will be buzzing.
