Weather-mediated natural selection on arrival time in cliff swallows (Petrochelidon pyrrhonota). 2002) and calcium-deficiency during this time may lead to birds laying egg shells that are thin, weak, and more porous which can lead to breeding failure. Indeed, an ecosystem approach to crop production and protection that combines different management strategies and practices is favoured by the Food and Agricultural Organizations of the United Nations to grow healthy crops and minimize the use of pesticides (Integrated Pest Management Program (Plant Production and Protection Division – UN 2013)). 2011). 2007, Masek et al. They nest on the bare ground and frequently on the flat graveled roofs of buildings. Special section: Rangewide ecology of the declining Rusty Blackbird, Rusty Blackbird: Mysteries of a species in decline. Poulin, B., G. Lefebvre, and L. Paz. This loss of habitat may be associated with the decline of bird species that use open habitats (Valiela and Martinetto 2007). Environment Canada, 2014a. Although some habitat suitability modelling has been done (Haché et al. Ground-nesting birds like Common Nighthawk may be especially negatively impacted in urban areas by free-roaming cats and feral pet species. On warm summer evenings, Common Nighthawks roam the skies over treetops, grasslands, and cities. Environmental Ecology. Mercury bioaccumulation and trophic transfer in the terrestrial food web of a montane forest. Cooperative relations should be fostered with landowners, the forest industry, farmers, industry, and pet owners to name a few, to implement beneficial management practices for the species and its habitat. 1992. 2011). Habitat requirements may vary across the range of the species. Hart, T.P. J. Appl. McClure, C.J., B.W. Many threats to Common Nighthawk have been identified, but none have been directly linked to population declines of the species. Acad. 2010. 224-225 in Cadman, M.D., P.F.J. Residential and commercial development and urban areas in general, have encroached upon a large amount of Canada's land over the last few decades (Cocklin et al. Chimney Swift (Chaetura pelagica) dietary records confirm a marked decrease in beetles (Coleoptera) and an increase in true bugs (Hemiptera) temporally correlated with a steep rise in DDT and its metabolites. 2002). 2011), and is believed to be contributing to the declines of other avian species heavily reliant on invertebrates, such as Rusty Blackbird (Euphagus carolinus) (McClure et al. 2000) either legally through loopholes in the restriction laws, or illegally, and they may still be in use in Central and South America (Klemens et al. Several years ago, we disturbed one on its forest-floor nest, it flew moth-like to a nearby branch and sat, waiting for us to go and hoping not to be seen. Common Nighthawks are generally found in open-area Ten percent of the global population of Common Nighthawks is estimated to breed in Canada (Rich et al. 2010). The species is quite migratory, wintering in much of South America east of the crest of the Andes. Gen. Tech. Greenberg, R. and S.M. Atwood, and D.C. Evers. 2011). 2014b). A schedule of studies has been developed to provide the information necessary to identify the critical habitat that will be sufficient to meet the population and distribution objectives. Almost any site can be used for roosting, including tree limbs, the ground, fenceposts, or rooftops that have shade from overheating, camouflage from predators, and unobstructed flight paths (Fisher et al. In the spring, perhaps the best way to recognize the species is to listen for its call. Environmental Science and Technology 37:2389-2393. For example, specific habitats may have greater densities of individuals or pairs and/or result in higher reproductive success. Nest predation in forest tracts and the decline of migratory songbirds. Brigham.1995. 2008, Saino et al. Allen, M.C. In the Netherlands, neonicotinoid concentrations in surface waters were correlated with the declines in farmland insectivorous birds (Hallmann et al. 2010 and Keller et al. Biology Common Nighthawks are found almost everywhere in Canada, except Newfoundland and the far north. ), Handbook of Ecotoxicology, 2nd edition. 1996 USDA National Wildlife Research Center - Staff Publications, Species profile: The Uncommon Common Nighthawk, Sensitive Species Inventory Guidelines (PDF; 1.11 MB). In urban environments, Common Nighthawks nest almost exclusively on roofs covered with pea gravel that provide a source of shade (Marzilli 1989). Recovery planning is intended to benefit species at risk and biodiversity in general. Estimates of avian mortality attributed to vehicle collisions in Canada. Flaspohler, and L.M.

Bennie, and K.J. Common nighthawks in Saskatoon. 2013. Benton, T.G., D.M. The species breeds in a wide range of open habitats including sandy areas (e.g., dunes, eskers, and beaches), open forests (e.g., mixedwood and coniferous stands, burns, and clearcuts), grasslands (e.g., short-grass prairies, pastures, and grassy plains), sagebrush, wetlands (e.g., bogs, marshes, lakeshores, and riverbanks), gravelly or rocky areas (e.g., outcrops, barrens, gravel roads, gravel rooftops, railway beds, mines, quarries, and bare mountain tops and ridges), and some cultivated or landscaped areas (e.g., parks, military bases, airports, blueberry fields, orchards, cultivated fields) (Hunt 2005, Campbell et al. Foraging nighthawks require open areas with flying insects and this need is met in a wide range of habitats. Canadian Journal of Forest Research 35, 772–786. One or more action plans for Common Nighthawk will be posted on the Species at Risk Public Registry within the five years following the posting of this recovery strategy. Ottawa, Ontario. An estimated two to seven percent of birds in Southern Canada are killed by cats annually (Blancher 2013). Seasonal patterns in tree swallow prey (Diptera) abundance are affected by agricultural intensification. (2003) suggested a large potential for avian distributional shifts in response to climate change. Photo by Bill Hubick. Available: http://www.epa.gov/oppsrrd1/reregistration/endosulfan/endosulfan-agreement.html [accessed: August 2014]. Conservation, management, and/or restoration of nesting habitat may be required in areas where important habitats have been lost or degraded, for example in grassland and agricultural areas. General prohibitions under the Migratory Birds Convention Act (1994) and its regulations protect Common Nighthawk nests and eggs anywhere they are found in Canada, regardless of land ownership. 2014c. 2011), suggesting that specific areas or habitat characteristics are optimal for flight efficiency and/or for foraging during migration. Harper, J.A. Sci. Territorial males produce a distinct booming sound caused by air rushing through feathers. Hobson, K. A., Bayne, E. M. and S. L. van Wilgenburg. Chemosphere 41:1107-1113. Mottled grey, brown, and black with wide white wing bars under wings, males also have a white chin and bar across underside of the tail. 2010, Nebel et al. When resting on the ground or a tree branch, it lies flat against the substrate and is well camouflaged by its mottled brown, grey, and black plumage. University of Regina. Breeding Birds of Québec. 1998. The spread of gulls nesting on roofs has been suggested as displacing nighthawks from nesting sites in Montreal (Ring-billed Gull, Larus delawarensis; COSEWIC 2007) and in cities of British Columbia (Glaucous-winged Gull, L. glaucescens; Campbell et al. New Hampshire Fish and Game Department, Concord, NH. Results from studies listed above will allow models to be built to identify the location, quantity, and quality of habitat that should be identified as critical habitat for Common Nighthawk. 2010. Environment Canada. Decades of fire suppression have resulted in longer fire intervals with reduced open areas that are used by breeding Common Nighthawks. Common Nighthawk is a medium-sized mottled grey-brown bird usually seen or heard overhead at dusk and dawn, with long pointed white-barred wings and unique bounding flight. Hoccom, and N. Symes. 1997. For copies of the recovery strategy, or for additional information on species at risk, including COSEWIC Status Reports, residence descriptions, action plans, and other related recovery documents, please visit the Species at Risk (SAR) Public RegistryFootnote1. Although largely undocumented for this species, pesticide use on both breeding and wintering grounds has been implicated in direct mortality and habitat loss of many avian species (e.g., Chamberlain et al. Current Ornithology 11:1-34. 2014). and J. Gulledge. Wildlife Afield 3:32-71. Pp. Critical habitat of Olive-sided Flycatcher, Canada Warbler, and Common Nighthawk in Canada (Project K4B20-13-0367) [DRAFT]. 2000. Acidification has been implicated in the decline of Wood Thrush (Hylocichla mustelina) (Hames et al. Academic Press. The current knowledge of the species, its wide breadth of nesting habitats, and the dynamic nature of landscapes that are used for nesting, roosting, and foraging impart a high degree of uncertainty in the identification of habitat necessary for the survival or recovery of the Common Nighthawk in Canada. Robinson, R.A., H.Q.P Crick, J.A. 2004). 2011). However, it is recognized that strategies may also inadvertently lead to environmental effects beyond the intended benefits. 2013. Ibis 146: 131-143. A Common Nighthawk roosts on a rocky bluff. Because the population objective for this species includes halting the species’ decline and ultimately increasing the population, potentially suitable but currently unoccupied habitat should be identified, as should any areas that are especially important passage or stopover sites during migration. Do free-ranging Common Nighthawks enter torpor? The available information is not adequate to enable the identification of critical habitat at a landscape scale for the following reasons: Locating nests is difficult and determining general nesting locations is problematic using typical point-count survey methodology. Debbie from Swift Care Ontario displays the wing pattern of a Common Nighthawk. Beaumont, and J.W. They are listed as above in the threat assessment table and are described in more detail below. This can result in fragmentation and/or a decline in the populations of certain species and changes to the community of insects available to aerial insectivores (Bruce-White and Shardlow 2011, Davies et al. Opportunistic sightings of Common Nighthawks were collected during surveys for Common Poorwill (Phalaenoptilus nuttallii) by the Saskatchewan Wetland Conservation Corporation (now the Saskatchewan Water Security Agency). Conway, L.J. There is a lack of data related to presence, site usage where detected (e.g., foraging, roosting, defending a territory, nesting, transiting), and abundance in large portions of the species’ range and the northern limit of the species’ range is unknown. While many birds sound similar, most birds are not actively calling around dusk/night; if this sound is heard during this time, there’s a good chance you’re hearing a Common Nighthawk! Courting males give a croaking auk auk auk call. Fact. Available: http://digitalcommons.iwu.edu/bio_honproj/10 [accessed: August 2014]. The small number of observations available for the modelling exercise may have resulted in inconsistencies reported among habitat models for Common Nighthawk and likely prevented findings of important habitat relationships (i.e., landscape-scale biophysical attributes) (Haché et al. The Common Nighthawk has a huge range, being found breeding throughout most of temperate Canada, and much of the eastern and midwestern US, as well as through Central America to southern Panama. 1988. Longcore, T., C. Rich, P. Mineau, B. MacDonald, D.G. Reduced reproductive success of Tree Swallows nesting near acidified wetlands in Ontario was linked to changes in available calcium-rich prey for nestlings (Blancher and McNicol 1991) and acidification of forests was implicated in the decline of Wood Thrush (Hylocichla mustelina) (Hames et al. Almost 50% of the deaths from collisions with wind turbines are predicted to occur in Ontario (Zimmerling et al. 2014. Foster (1991) noted the drainage of wetlands and peat extraction as a significant threat facing insect populations. Freedman, B. Common Nighthawk. Environmental Effects of Acid Rain.

Taylor, P. 2009. In flight, adults have a white patch across the primaries. A fourth species, the Chuck-will’s-widow, can occasionally be found on Point Pelee in southern Ontario. See link to article about panting and thermoregulation, which may be limiting Brewer's Blackbird range in Ontario. 2006. Pashley, K.V. Up on the roof. Their sharp, electric peent call is often the first clue they’re overhead. Barker, and A.A. Dhondt. Program Background The WildResearch Nightjar Survey began in south central British Columbia in 2010 and expanded to the rest of the province in 2014. Publ. Lambert, G.E. Travis, D. Drake. Level of Concern: signifies that managing the threat is of (high, medium, or low) concern for the recovery of the species, consistent with the population and distribution objectives. Baudvin, H. 1997. Common Nighthawk is considered and mitigative measures are established for land-use development projects and during environmental assessments across Canada. COSEWIC assessment and status report on the Common Nighthawk Chordeiles minorin Canada. Research by Rimmer et al. 2013. The Wilson Journal of Ornithology 124:113-118. 4, 360-370. 2007. Learmonth, I.M.D. Hillier, J.L. A project was launched in 2014 by Environment Canada in Quebec to assess the possibility of monitoring Common Nighthawk in the boreal forest using Song Meters programmed to record during periods of nighthawk activity and placed near stops on Breeding Bird Survey routes the night before the surveys are conducted. Crick, N.K. Calvert, Anna M., et al. Foppen, C.A.M. Aerial ecology and the aerial biomass which Common Nighthawks utilize are poorly understood. Adverse effects of acid rain on the distribution of the Wood Thrush Hylocichla mustelina in North America. Center for Climate and Energy Solutions: Arlington, VA. Griscom, L. 1949. Rolek, K.

Bishop and Brogan (2013) found Caprimulgiformes represented 1.9% of the birds reported in North American studies of bird mortalities resulting from collisions with vehicles, whereas Loss et al. Geographical patterns in openland cover and hayfield mowing in the Upper Great Lakes region: implications for grassland bird conservation. There are fundamental problems with interpreting Breeding Bird Survey and other point-count survey data for Common Nighthawk. http://www.ceaa.gc.ca/default.asp?lang=En&n=B3186435-1, http://www.ec.gc.ca/dd-sd/default.asp?lang=En&n=CD30F295-1. Many species will benefit from reductions in air pollutants. Crawford, A.M. Manville II, E.R. 2007. There is a lack of understanding and data to indicate the appropriate landscape-scale biophysical attributes required by the species and their configuration at a landscape scale. Burton, Jr., and J. Cairns, Jr. Figure 1 illustrates the distribution of the species in North, Central and South America according to range type. Nocera, J.J., J.M. The population objectives address the species’ long-term decline, which was the reason for its designation as Threatened (COSEWIC 2007). Drought stress, insects, and yield loss. Landscape Ecology 24:309-323. Natural succession may also pose a problem in native prairies where fire suppression is used as a management technique (McCracken 2005). 2011.

Environmental Pollution 171:148-154. Its dark brown and speckled plumage makes it almost invisible when perched on the ground. Species profile: Common Nighthawk Chordeiles minor. Such collaboration should have a synergistic effect on several other species at risk, whose winter ranges overlap with Common Nighthawk. Thus, collaboration with international jurisdictions and non-governmental organizations to identify, preserve, restore, and enhance winter habitat is an equally important component of this strategy. c. E111 1990), New Brunswick (S.N.B. Les navigateurs désuets ne disposent pas de caractéristiques sécuritaires permettant d’assurer la sécurité de vos renseignements. Climate change and fire. It is extremely well-camouflaged by its mottled brown plumage when perched on the ground or horizontal surfaces. In the early 1900s in Ontario, the species was considered abundant by Macoun and Macoun (1909). Web Ecology 1: 63–69.

Protection • Federally protected under the Species at Risk Act, 2002 and under the Migratory Birds Convention Act, 1994. The Government of Saskatchewan published a Common Nighthawk Survey Protocol (Saskatchewan Ministry of Environment 2014). Heinz, G.H., and Scheuhammer, A.M. 2003. 1978. It is not deemed feasible to halt population declines immediately due the number of potential threats to the species, their nature, and ultimately the uncertainty around the cause of the decline. It was concluded that this strategy will not result in any significant adverse effects. Six Canadian Provinces presently have this species listed on their respective species at risk legislation, and fully utilizing the potential of those designations is important. The recovery of the Common Nighthawk in Canada is considered feasible; however, there are several unknown factors associated with its potential for recovery. Direct and indirect effects of pollution on the foraging behaviour of forest passerines during the breeding season. These life history characteristics contribute to this species’ intrinsic sensitivity to changes in their environment. U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. Higley (eds). The performance indicators presented below provide a way to define and measure progress toward achieving the population and distribution objectives. 2009. Twenty-five years of sprawl in the Seattle region: Grown management responses and implications for conservation. Bayne., S. Cumming, F. Schmiegelow, and D. Stralberg. Huber, D.G. Outdated browsers lack safety features that keep your information secure, and they can also be slow. Nevertheless, the direct mechanisms for the population declines (e.g., reduced insect availability, lethal exposure) are unknown (Nocera et al. 2007. Under provincial endangered species legislation, Common Nighthawk is listed as Special Concern in Ontario (ESA 2007) and Threatened in Manitoba (C.C.C.S.M. Meyer, M.B. Commission for Environmental Cooperation of North America 2003 (PDF; 374 KB). ... Common nighthawk. Like many other species at risk, there are legal means to protect Common Nighthawk and its habitat in Canada. Bert, L.M. The long-term (i.e., after 2025) population objective is to ensure a positive 10-year population trend for the Common Nighthawk in Canada. Xing, Z., L. Chow, H. Rees, F. Meng, S. Li, B. Ernst, G. Benoy, T. Zha, and L.M. Common Nighthawk (Chordeiles minor) is the most frequently seen member of the nightjar family. Common Nighthawk is most often seen in flight, Paquette, S.R., D. Garant, F. Pelletier, and M. Bélisle. In southeastern Canada, succession of abandoned farmland has been the trend in marginal areas (i.e., areas not capable of sustained production of cultivated field crops) (Desponts 1996, Cadman et al. Population trends in grassland, shrubland, and forest birds in Eastern North America. [accessed: August 2014]. Currently, insecticides used for forestry operations in Canada are mainly biological (Bacillus thuringiensis var. 2003, and Wiener et al.
