The Nighthawk Return
April 10, 2014 • Leave a Comment
Now that migration is here, we're starting to see the return of many birds at our favorite parks. We know some of these birds are the same ones returning from years past. Last summer and fall we found several Lesser Nighthawks sitting in the same spots in the same trees everyday at the park for more than a month. Some may remember the nighthawk in the elm tree near the restroom. Yesterday I looked up and there sits the nighthawk. Sitting in the same tree, the same limb, the same spot where we saw it last fall. I find that amazing.
Here are photos of the nighthawk. The first was taken on 4/9/14 and the second on 8/31/13.
