Major flight of Common Nighthawks!

This evening at 6:40 pm I got a call from Lance Verderame. He was at Linear Park listening to the Prothonotary Warbler when a flight of Common Nighthawks began. I headed right down to the Bashakill to see if I could get them there, our best location for viewing this species. By the time Lance had arrived, I had already counted 124 nighthawks! Together we continued the count until 8:30 pm when we reached our total for the evening of 402 Common Nighthawks!! This was a new record for both of us, and a new record for the county! The winds are supposed to continue out of the southwest overnight so the migration results should be good in the morning!
