Media notes

Calling during courtship display. It kept making short upward loops and calling just as it momentarily fluttered/ hovered. After several of these upward loops, it performed a steep high speed dive pulling up just above the water. I could not confirm if it was diving toward another perched nighthawk. It did several of these displays always making the two note call. I took video, but the recording was too shaky to share.
