Nighthawk Population Decline

 

Do you have access to a gravel rooftop in the city, ecspecially large roofs? Maybe you know of very rural areas with low or very sparse vegetation, like old strip mines. We are looking for nesting habitats where Dr. Steve Latta can conduct research to investigate factors affecting Common Nighthawk declines.  If so, please contact Steve Latta, director of conservation at the National Aviary right away at Steven.Latta@aviary.org! The sites do not need to have nesting nighthawks, they just need the appropriate habitat. You can even help monitor the cameras if you have access to an appropriate site!
