Sixteen observers came out on Sunday night, the last night of the Nighthawk Watch, to look for nighthawks but were, alas, disappointed since none were observed. As a consolation prize several species of "winter" ducks have arrived in the pond next to the watch including Northern Shoveler, A.

Last night we had a highly productive count with 237 nighthawks coming through. Typically, by early October the numbers start waning so the total for 10/1 was a large surprise. Will be curious to see how the weather over the next couple of days affects the count. John Turner -- NYSbirds-L

The skies above Frank Melville Park graced us with 95 nighthawks last night including the same or yet another tail-less bird. They came through in a steady stream of mostly two, three, and four bird groups. John Turner -- NYSbirds-L List Info:

After batting zero in Wednesday's rainy watch, we were hoping the skies would be filled with nighthawks on Thursday night. Alas, this was not to be with only 12 birds tallied...but a better result tonight with 148 nighthawks seen, many of which were actively feeding overhead. John Turner

After several days of little to no action presumably due to the inclement weather, the nighthawks arrived today with 306 birds being counted. This total represents the second highest total recorded to date, eclipsed by the 573-bird day last September 8th.  John Turner   -- NYSbirds-L List
