nighthawk sp.Number observed: 1
Comments: Nighthawk flew directly overhead at the end of the afternoon (4pm) and rose above the trees and continued south. Long narrow wings, barred underside and long body shape of a nighthawk, however, the look was too brief and the angle poor to see where the white areas on the wings were located so a species id could not be made. Another report, the same day and presumably the same bird from Esquimalt was made to the Rare Bird Alert. Very late in the year for a nighthawk.
