I just returned from Legends Steakhouse, Exit 70 (Almaville Road) off I-24. I 
heard the distinctive call of a Common Nighthawk. Saw a bird flying in the 
air but it was a Killdeer. The nighthawk called again and then I noticed it was 
not flying but sitting on top of a light pole in the parking lot of the 
steakhouse very close to my parked car. He continued to call and is possibly 
sitting there and calling. I heard and saw the bird about 7:30 pm this evening. 
Are Common Nighthawks birds of schedule? Is it possible the bird may be 
sitting there on top of that same light pole tomorrow evening about the same
