Another night with the Nighthawks. This evening I played "Dad" and brought my son to his first soccer practice of the season. A new field for us, and I have to say I am pleased at the new location as it is right across the street from a large bend in the Merrimack River.
As I suspected, I had a flow of Nighthawks come right over me and feed on the bugs the kids were kicking up from the grass. In a period from 5:20 PM to 6:40 PM, I counted 181 Nighthawks. Smallest grouping was a few loners, to the largest grouping of 35.
