This evening(Tuesday) on a Friends of Mount Auburn organized Nighthawk Watch we tallied 30 Common Nighthawks. They appeared late as the wind died down and the sky above and below the tower filled with a hatch of flying ants. At one point we had 12-15 flying over the tower coming close,diving, and darting chasing insects, quite a show!! We also had two Ospreys, an adult Red-tailed perched on a nearby obelisk and the resident Peregrine on the Tufts Building.
