Hi Tweeters!

At about 3:30 today, I spotted what I'm pretty sure was a Common Nighthawk
diving and wheeling in the skies above the Washington Arboretum. It was
beyond the reach of my camera, but I clearly saw the V-shaped wings and
white markings under the wings through my binoculars as it rose and dove.
My wife and I were in the southern portion of the Arboretum looking east
toward the Madison Park neighborhood.

Is it weird for this bird to A) still be in our neck of the woods this time
of year and B) be active in the afternoon?

Keep watching the skies!
