Common Nighthawk!

A nesting pair of Common Nighthawks was discovered recently at an undisclosed location in the Meadowlands. 

These birds are a species of special concern in New Jersey.

We believe this might be the first record of a nesting pair in the district in decades.

(We also are amazed by how big the eye is — appropriate for a bird that loves the twilight.)

A post from two years ago, including a photo of a nighthawk in flight, is here.
