The summer has sped by. It’s hard to imagine that it is time again for our yearly Nighthawk watch near the entrance of the Oxbow Refuge on Still River Depot Road in Harvard, from 5:30 PM until Dark. The dates are Saturday, August 22 and 29, and September 5 and 12. However, if those days are not convenient, bring your chair and your binoculars and watch any other evening from now until about September 12.
