Common Nighthawk

Since Common Nighthawk are a rare species in Manitoba it was really cool and exiting when we saw one about a week ago. We actually saw it three times flying over and once it landed in a nearby tree. The first time I wasn't sure what it was, though I thought it was a nighthawk or something. When I looked in the bird book I immediately knew that it was a Common Nighthawk. Common Nighthawks have two distinctive white bars under its wing and a nasal peent call.
