Checklist Comments:    BBC- Nighthawks Over Minute Man NHP- Leader: Kathy Dia- Pleasant 70’s F, As expected ,given lack of recent reports, there were few nighthawks. But we had a lively walk and saw some interesting birds! Young Henry added scientific bird names and classification info of interest. Thank you to Jay Dia, Leslie Wittman, Greg, Ann, and Jeff and all who helped folks get on the birds we observed.
