Its definetly of the nighthawk family. They are a species of bird relatively common throughout north and south america. They eat only on the fly,
meaning they have to eat while flying around in midair. They fly around looking like large bats in the evening sky, sometimes around streetlights
catching moths and other large insects. They are also migratory and are some of the first birds to head south in the fall, mainly due to the decrease
in the insect population. I actually had one of these stuck in my place of employment flying around the rafters. We finally opened a skylight so it
could fly out. Cool bird, everyone I work with the it was a raptor of some kind. But they are simply a fast flying, LARGE mouthed, odd looking
bird...very much of this earth.
