At 6:30, 45 Nighthawks flew over the yard here in Harwinton all headed due 
North. Does anyone know why they do this when south or West is the best way to 
the tropics?
 I have noticed this habit of flying due North for years late in the day. Are 
they seeking insects or are they seeing other Nighthawks feeding to the North of
