Common Nighthawks appear
Spurred on by Will Pollard's early evening twitter report of six COMMON NIGHTHAWKS flying over the Long Meadow by Picnic House,I went to the Nethermead. From that Park's center,I spotted two along the Center Drive ,heading east; I stuck with the desire to continue seeing more.About a few moments later,in the distance a total of seven COMMON NIGHTHAWKS could be seen over the Midwood \ zoo airspace.
Early this morning ,Kathy Toomey reported two early bird nighthawks about 730.
Perhaps the predicted northeast wind tomorrow might egg on more nighthawks along.
