Nighthawk Migration!


A few hundred, at least, flying over now, feeding as they go. They are swooping in big circles fairly high up. I can see the white bands on their wings. I always start crying when I see them migrating south at this time of year. They had passed over but I think a plane taking off from the airport and ascending directly above and in front of them sent them back this way for a bit.

My friend saw hundreds of them yesterday.
