September: Common Nighthawk

Sep 5, 2015 by

At close to the end of September days, time spent outdoors might give you a glimpse of this interesting and elusive bird. The common nighthawk is migrating southward and gobbling Connecticut insects on the wing as it goes. Close to evening, small flocks may be seen zooming and zipping around the sky. You will know them by long pointed wings and their insect hunting behavior. If they fly lower, you may be able to see the band of white across the wing. Look quickly, they are gone in a flash!
