westerly on Alligator Pt. near dusk on 01 Sept 05. Yesterday fewer
nighthawks were moving along in the same manner. They seem to have been
following the coastline as they didn't wander too far from it, just a large
loose stream of birds. There may have been more, I don't know how many had
passed before I encountered them. Local breeders have been largely absent
for a few weeks.
