White-throat of a male Lesser Nighthawk. Round wings.

Observation details

We have seen these nighthawks every spring since 2006. They are brown verses charcoal. Wings round at tip. Flight different from Common. They look like big brown moths flying low over the water. We are cleaning out past photos of the Lesser Nighthawks taken at the Nucla Sewer and noticed there are no photos on ebird.
