I heard a "PEENT" call note overhead in the backyard yesterday evening (21 May), but couldn't locate the bird. Then this morning I heard it again and looked up to see a pointy-winged nighthawk. This is first of spring for us and quite right on schedule. If I'm remembering correctly, it was 20 May, 2000 at Deep Springs when Tom and Jo set California's early record for Common Nighthawk.
