Common Nighthawks, Alder Flycatcher in Somers
- MOB-sters:Susannah and I walked from the house over to the boat ramp in Somers tonight, and had 3 FOY Common Nighthawks overhead. We also had a singing Alder Flycatcher in the swamp southeast of the bike trail along the highway between the swim beach and the Somers turnoff. Over the years, it has not been unusual for an occasional singing Alder to show up in the Flathead in June. They are usually one-day wonders. But I will check for this bird again in the morning.Dan CaseySomers
- FOY Common Nighthawk heard as I gardened last evening. I love these guys, and anxiously wait to hear that nighthawk sound every year.
