Night Hawks Back

The night hawks (sometimes called bull bats) are back,  swooping overhead at dusk last evening, hunting flying insects. This was first night that I've seen them. Their return this year is about two weeks earlier than last year. They are absolutely fascinating to watch, especially when they are flying just above rooftop level. Neighbor reports that the night hawks were back last Thursday, the 17th.

The small bats that hang out under the front porch vigas returned more than two weeks ago, also earlier than usual.
