ID help - stumped - broad body very short tail Florida

Recommended Posts

Hi all - saw this bird today, Oct 14, 2018 flying over a barrier island in the Tampa area of Florida (gulf coast).  It was at sunrise and my impression at the time was Common Nighthawk.  But in looking at the pictures I don't see the white patches in the wings.  Pics are horrible with the bird flying away (in to the sun no less).
