Nighthawks during the day?

Recommended Posts


I'm new on the forum and new at bird photography so hopefully this is not a stupid question.  Attached are some pictures I took at Monte Vista National Wildlife Refuge in Colorado on July 14.  They look like Common Nighthawks to my untrained eyes.  However, I took these pictures at around 1:00 PM.  Does it make sense to see two nighthawks flying around in the middle of the day?

Welcome to Whatbird!  Those are definitely Common Nighthawks, and they do sometimes fly during the day.
