|Common Nighthawk - roosting|
I was so excited that I send out a text message about it. Within a few minutes, Richard Crossley showed up with his camera to see the bird. Richard is a famous birder and author of Crossley ID Guide series. We have 2 of them at the house. They are really good guides that have alot of photos of each bird in various "normal" positions and habitats. We stood there and watched the bird until sunset when the bird took flight, circled the pond and flew off into the night.
