Owen Sound - This bird should be heading to Africa via Europe after breeding in the eastern Arctic but got her wires crossed.

Cornwall - Common Nighthawks no longer breed in our region so if we want to see one in the summer we have to head almost two hours northwest onto part of the Canadian Shield. They prefer open rocky areas with limited vegetation for breeding. This bird was a migrant that spent the day sleeping on a power line. In the third week of August, several flocks of a dozen or more moved through late in the day.
