I counted over 20 nighthawks over downtown Columbia, MO in the space of about 15 minutes as my wife and I walked across the street from the parking lot to the movie theatre around sunset. They were cruising at a higher altitude than the multitude of swifts which were chattering diving above the tops of the buildings. With the  sunset reflecting off the clouds it was a beautiful sight.

  I spotted about 50 nighthawks last night at 6:30 p.m. over the intersection of Kingshighway Boulevard and I-44 in St. Louis.
