Observation details

Continuing bird since 10/21. Appeared at 5:10 p.m. foraging on both sides of Lakeview Bridge, flying high then as low enough to see clearly with naked eye. Flight seemingly erratic as bird pursued insects. Distinguished from Lesser Nighthawk by more pointed wings and by white bar on wing further from wingtip.
