We had 43 birds last night and 139 nighthawks tonight. About a dozen came down toward dusk to feed over the pond, providing great views. Interestingly, 23 birds headed in the opposite direction - from the southwest to the northeast - from what we usually observe.
It was nice to welcome some birders who live in the Big Apple and a reporter writing an article on the Watch.
