I did my Night Birds survey for the CT DEEP early this morning and found 3 WHIP-POOR-WILLs in Southington, before heading up to my camp at Long Pond in Lempster, NH and found a COMMON NIGHTHAWK while kayaking at dusk.
For the CT list:
From Jack Swatt:
6/17/14 - Southington, Mt Vernon Rd power line cut - 1 WHIP-POOR-WILL
Southington, Whitman Rd. - at least 2 WHIP-POOR-WILLs
For the NH list:
1 COMMON NIGHTHAWK seen circling over the northern end of Long Pond in Lempster with one wing-whir display. Also BARRED OWL calling and COMMON LOON pair nesting.
