All,

Did better tonight than Wednesday with nighthawks and birds overall:

Common Grackle - over 1,300, with two groups of 450 each being the largest
Big Brown Bat (I guess) - 2
Little Brown Bat - 2

Nighthawks:
7:10-7:12 - 26 birds flying north to south
7:15 - 3 birds flying west to east
7:18 - 7 birds flying north to south
*7:23-7:40 - 13 birds hawking over Bridgeville area north to me - I did not count these as new birds
7:28 - 3 birds flying north to south
7:30 - 6 birds flying north to south
7:34 - 24 birds flying north to south
7:43 - 1 bird flying north to south
7:59 - 1 bird flying east to west
8:01 - 1 bird flying north to south
8:03 - 2 birds flying north to south
8:08 - 2 birds flying west to east

Total birds - 76 (+13 possible repeats)

If the weather holds tomorrow night, and if I have the time, I plan on counting again. Sunday looks like rain, but Monday looks promising again.
