1,234 Nighthawks in southern NH! Nighthawk migration in full swing!

Common Nighthawks

View from our deck

Nighthawk migration is in full swing here in southern NH and last night we counted 1,234 from our deck! These dramatic birds can be seen in numbers during their fall migration time. Watch for them at dusk especially along river corridors. They feed on flying insects and last night there were large numbers of flying ants dispersing into the sky. Such exciting birds!
