After seeing none all week, last evening I had 31 Nighthawks, most in a group of 20 just after 7 pm. I think this means they are now in our area, but this was likely just a "test flight" as the wind was from the S and 6 birds were heading N--unusual at such a late hour. The big flight may be coming tonight. With the storms predicted, it should be interesting. Storms often cause Nighthawks to flock more and if storms come from the W as projected they may bunch up in our area moving East to avoid them. Also, storms mean lots of lift to produce the cumulus clouds, lift that also gets insects up.
