Common Nighthawk


When we first moved to Boise in 1978, you could go out on any summer evening and hear numerous C. Nighthawks. Sadly, that is no longer the case. But yesterday I heard my FOY CONI, and this evening, as I was opening a window to put in the fan, I heard one again. I’m sure they are more common where we don’t try to kill every mosquito, etc., but I have to admit I got a little jolt of pleasure hearing them last night and tonight (around 10:20). I hope I get to hear them all summer, and not just to boost my daily list. ;-)
