Fwd: Common Nighthawk & warblers in Prospect Park

Despite of coming late to walk around the park, I was rewarded by the diversity of species of birds recorded.
Most of the time I spent in the park was around the pools, Midwood, and a short visit to Lookout Hill/Butterfly Meadow.
Talking about warblers, I tallied 15 species. Good ones were: Blackburnian, Bay-breasted, Chestnut-sided. Others like: Ovenbird, Northern Parula, Yellow, Blackpoll, Myrtle/Yellow-rumped, BT Blue.
Also flycatchers, from the vociferous Great Crested to the almost silent Wood Pewee, and the difficult Empidonax ones, like Yellow-bellied (Midwood), and a Acadian seen at the Vale.
Attached are some photos of the Common Nighthawk found in the Butterfly Meadow.
