Nighthawk watch

With north west / west wind this evening still in progress,it was sensible to go out and look for nighthawk s

I ran into Kathy Toomey at the Nethermead triangle. Kathy reported one Nighthawk. I looked up northeasterly and spotted the bird with it's jerky flight. Kathy reported prior my arrival hundreds of Chimney Swift's.

Before our watch was over at 8: 10 we spotted three NIGHTHAWKs, coincidentally the same number the night before reported by Karen O'Hearn.

Our birds stuck close to center drive towards the bridge and south Midwood with forays into Binnen Run airspace.

One or three ,it doesn't matter ,I'll settle for my traditional August end bird.
