Common Nighthawk - A member of the Nightjar family (along with Whip-Poor-Wills and Chuck-Will's-Widows but Common Nighthawks are more easily seen than heard). This family is also known as “Goat-suckers” but they feed on insects. Common Nighthawks can be often identified, especially at dusk, by their acrobatic flying, plus their conspicuous white underwing stripes (faintly shown in the photo). (Photo by Steve Muise)
