Subject: [obol] Lesser Nighthawk in Humboldt County CA
I think Alan Contreras commented on the (rather unlikely)report of a nighthawk somewhere in Oregon this week--a high likelihood that it was a Lesser if it was indeed a nighthawk. On March 29 a Lesser Nighthawk was photographed in the Eureka/Arcata area. The first confirmed record for Humboldt County. Not the first record period, and l recall someone hearing a Lesser Nighthawk at Beverly Beach SP about a decade ago, in a summer month.       I for one would be dismissive if l saw a nighthawk in Oregon in March, try to explain it away. Hard to come up with an expected species that's remotely similar.Sent from my Verizon, Samsung Galaxy smartphone
