Observation details

When we arrived there were 2 nighthawks. Numbers increased over then next 45 minutes until we had at least 14 counted at one time. Our impression was that the birds were flying west out into the desert, then returning to catch more insects. So the number of nighthawks present may have been higher. When we left at 9:30, there were still many nighthawks actively hawking. At least 2 females present, the rest were males.
