1, Basic, female, present 29 April 1974; found by: Alan Wormington; documentation provided by: Alan Wormington; photo(s) on file (Alan Wormington). Published comments: This occurrence remains today as the only record of Lesser Nighthawk for Ontario and Canada, and the entire Great Lakes Region (Wormington 2002), and was included in the original OBRC checklist for Ontario (Wormington and James 1984). See also James et al. (1976) and Godfrey (1986). Weather conditions and a strong migration surge surely played a role in bringing this remarkable bird to southwestern Ontario. 1st (OBRC accepted) Ontario record for this species. 1st OBRC accepted record for southern Ontario for this species. Record accepted by OBRC (record number 216?). Record published in 2001 OBRC annual report.
