Shortly after 5 pm today there were 11 Common Nighthawks flying low over Ashford Lake in Ashford. I've been seeing them moving relatively early in the day during migration (south) at this location for several years now. I wonder if Yale Forest, which is relatively close by, might be an attractive roosting location. Most of my other sightings in the area tend to be after 6:30pm as dusk settles in. Does anyone else see them moving early?
