Observation details

Observers: Shannon Jenner and Randy Wagner. The Yukon’s first and Canada’s 4th Lesser Nighthawk, a juv. female, was a stunning discovery in Whitehorse, 25 October. A detailed comparison of the photo to museum specimens conducted by Peter Pyle ruled out the possibility that this bird was one of the similar Common Nighthawk subspecies (eg. Chordeiles minor howelli).
