Nighthawk in Potter Valley
- Fri, 12 Jun 2009 -- This evening at sunset I was walking along West Road in
Potter Valley south of the cemetery when a nighthawk flew over low heading
for toward the western hills. It was silent, but I got a good enough look
at the position of the white bar and the pointedness of the wings to be sure
that it was a COMMON NIGHTHAWK. It's the first of this species that I've
seen in Potter Valley since 10 Jun 1984.
