This is pretty weird. If roosting near lights they do talk after dark like a 
slumber party. Like downtown Auburn. But roosts in more natural settings are 
quiet in dark.  I could only locate them with a receiver and  radio tagged 
birds. But they don’t fly in the dark well and I would assume that calling was  
because of something that disturbed them and scared them up from a roost spot. 

Also they aren’t migrating now- at least no evidence but they are moving in 
daylight between foraging areas such as newly turned fields.
