Subject: [obol] Fwd: nighthawk on ground

I once climbed the south butte at the Malheur Field Station at dusk. A
Common Nighthawk was displaying overhead. Using my binoculars, I saw the
female on the trail in the dusk. She was pecking at the gravel like a
barnyard chicken, TOTALLY DISINTERESTED. When she moved up the trail ahead
of me, the male's display flight moved with her.

Hi Birders,

Here's a couple vids of different-for-me behavior. A Common Nighthawk not
looking particulary graceful, getting his grits, and trying to do a a kind
of perspective-enhancing neck pump ...if he only had a neck

and a potpourri of critters entering and exiting stage left, right, up....a
dust up good birding, Tom
