Observation details

Seen well naked eye at 60-75 feet loosely associating with Lesser Nighthawks. Then soared much higher which is when I was able to grab camera and photograph. Long wings. Forked tail. No light colors at all. Soaring and gliding consistent with this species. This date corresponds with their migration up into NM to nest at Jemez Falls.
