Four Harbors Audubon Society kicked off the 2018 field season for the Nighthawk Watch at the Stone Bridge at Frank Melville Park with a Power Point presentation yesterday at the Red Barn in the Park on the "what", "why", "where", "when", and "how" of the Watch. Many of the thirty-five or so participants then walked to the bridge to look for nighthawks. We had 21 nighthawks pass by, all coming from the south, with thirteen breaking west while a flock of eight broke east. Lots of Chimney Swifts as well.
The Stone Bridge Watch will officially kick off next Monday (8/27) at 5:30, the same date as last year. All are welcome!
