May 15, 2019 Mount Auburn Cemetery Cambridge - Nighthawk roosting on the Ridge!

I'll pass along a full list later, but in the meantime I wanted to alert people to the presence of a nighthawk sleeping on Indian Ridge. When you go to the dry dell, walk all the way to the end and turn left onto Indian Ridge. Almost immediately on your left there will be an oak tree with tons of yellow buds on it. On the middle left of the tree are two branches that are fully exposed, running left. The bottom one is thinner, and the upper one is thicker. This thicker branch, if you scan along it, has a nighthawk roosting on it. TONS of good looks and an opportunity for photographing.
