I had a pair of Common Nighthawks fly over Vreeland Rd. Pond yesterday at about 6 pm. Yes, they still exist!
Thanks for your report, John.

Subject: [birders] Chimney Swifts and Nighthawk? over Milan

Anne and I counted roosting Chimney Swifts the past two evenings at the chimney on Milan, Michigan's City Hall. Counts (with estimated range of error +/- 5%) were: September 14 - 174 birds and September 15 - 144 birds.

Last evening at about 8:00 we had a fly-over the treetops of a Caprimulgid. The brief view of the bird's flight pattern strongly suggested a Nighthawk, but the characteristic white wing spots of that species were not clearly visible, making me wonder if it may have been an even unlikelier Whippoorwill. The sky was dusky enough at that time that the wing spots may have been obscured. Either way it was thrilling to see even this lone ghost flier of fall evenings past.
