About a week ago in the evening near dusk, I was in the garden and about 10 or so nighthawks flew low overhead to the southwest. I have not seen any since but have been looking. They used to appear flying overhead midsummer, maybe 1-3, as we dined on the back porch....unmistakable fliers.

Now they are buzzing around my neighborhood in Milliken the last couple evenings, vocal and all. I simply hope it is that they have fledged young and are out and about. But bugs are disappearing around the world, maybe the nighthawks are heading south. Who knows.

The tomatoes are just starting to look well. We’ve avoided hail thus far. They’ll sit in a tree screeching right in front of me mere feet away but I can’t see them. Yet suddenly, as invisible as they were a moment prior, they are unmistakably present magically before me. What is it with these birds? They’re not here. Then they’re right there. Seriously, right there. They mess with you. They don’t mean to. They’re just doing them. Their calls can comfort you if you believe them and let them. Summer is here. Why point south? Bugs will make them turn that way, I suppose. I hope. Maybe this was a longer winter than I thought. Maybe Spring will last ‘til July. But they made it. Later than usual. But they’re here. How their calls comfort me in my little backyard in mid-town Fort Collins.
