Are there any other hawks or raptors that have those strong white bars on the underside of the wings? This morning as I was driving to work 7 am (country road south of Houston) I saw what appeared to be an all black bird (crow/hawk sized) that had wide white markings on the underside of the wings. Thank you.

Common Nighthawks flap their wings a lot!  This "flappy" behavior is an ID characteristic, as compared to soaring or strong full wing flaps of most raptors.  They also have an unusual "Peeent"  sound if you stop to listen.  Cool Bird!
