I am glad you wrote "total silence" -- it strikes me each year that
nighthawks tend to call as they fly and feed in the summer but tend to
fly and feed silently during migration. Does this square with anyone
else's observations?

I don't know how long it has been going on, but tonight, September 1,
around 
9:00 p.m., my wife and I saw a spectacular show over the new pedestrian
Shelby 
Street Bridge--hundreds of Common Nighthawks wheeling and reeling
through the 
air, in and out of the strong light emanating from the bridge, feasting
on 
countless unseen insects.  And, except for an occasional rustle of wings
as they 
flew near, they did it all in total silence.  Quite a show!  Winged 
Migration, where were you?
