East Haddam yard - I arrived home to find huge flocks of tree swallows and nighthawks among them all dispersing north and east, surprisingly at 5:15pm.  I have counted up to 30 nighthawks in 15 minutes, and estimate 600 swallows, 1 Purple Martin.  We also had a large bug hatch in the yard so maybe it is generalized in the area and the birds are taking advantage.
