Hugh Cotter and I refound the bird roosting this morning at same location. It didn't flush. Still there now as we're leaving at 8:30. Dom and Mark Eaton out as well.
From parking lot at entrance to Gleneagles Golf Course, walk across street to utility pole with big gray utility box on it. There is an area of cleared vegetation directly behind it. The nighthawk is roosting on ground next to a green plastic bottle. We agree this is a Common Nighthawk.
Please be respectful of the bird and do not approach too closely. You can see and photograph it from a distance.
Thanks to Parke for reporting this. Great find!
Common Nighthawk spotted today around 11:30 am in the Sunnydale grassland south of Gleneagles golf course. Bird was notably exhausted. Displayed white wing bars in flight. Incidentally observed by the Recreation & Parks Natural Resource Division. -Parke Custis
