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.
