I covered the Quaker Ridge Hawk Watch at the Greenwich Audubon Center this
afternoon, which was really about putting myself in position to hopefully
watch Common Nighthawk migration later on. That did not disappoint. Between
5:30 and 7:45, I counted 281 (including one group of 72). The busiest time
was 6-6:30. Except for what built into a group of 7 feeding in the area for
about 20 minutes, all were purposefully moving through in various southerly
trajectories. Yes, this site is in Connecticut, but close to the New York
border, and should get people thinking about NY locations to watch. The site
is also well south of Croton Point, so those would all have been different
birds. Who knows how many were moving through on a broad front?
