Went to Eagleville (Mansfield) again to look for  nighthawks, but where 
yesterday I saw many hundreds, tonight I saw 39. Most of  them came late, when 
it was almost too dark to see, and flew  in 1's, 2's  and 3's, plus one 
group of  5 
Best bird of the night was a Great Egret, who flew directly up  over the 
dam and straight up the river, flying fairly high. Got a glimpse of his  
yellow bill or it would have been dicey. 3 Chimney Swifts, flying down river,  
and 2 Great Blue Herons, 1 the resident, the other a closely watched  flyover. 
 About a dozen Cedar Waxwings, perching on the rocks below  the dam, and 2 
Spotted Sandpipers flying in and out.
