It appears that Common Nighthawks have begun to migrate south. Tonight at 6:50, I counted 38 flying over St. Anne’s school. 20min later I counted 44 flying around stormwater ponds behind Walmart and Evans Dr (suspect the same flock just moving around the north end). Pretty amazing site to see the sky dotted in nighthawks! Coincidentally, I also noticed more blackflies than I’ve seen in months.    Scott Gibson

We were driving east on Hwy 7 late yesterday afternoon (near Carleton Place), and also saw a fairly large flock of Common Nighthawks, generally flying south-east.   Toni Sinclair
