The Common Nighthawk, Chordeiles minor, is a nightjar.

Their breeding habitat is open country across North America. They usually nest on bare ground, sometimes in raised locations including stumps or gravel roofs and in burned out forest floors.

Identification Tips:
• Length: 9 inches Wingspan: 23 inches
• Very short bill
• Blackish upperparts with gray and white patterning
• Brown and white patterning on head and chest
• Underparts with heavy dark bars
• Dark wings with conspicuous pale patch midway out from bend in wing
