A common nighthawk has taken up residence at Bill’s Tractor and has captured the attention of customers and employees alike, since the bird has laid eggs on the ground -- with no nest -- just 4 feet from the Bill’s Tractor back door.

“We roped off the area so no one will step on her or her eggs,” Rick Bailes said. “Hopefully, they will hatch in a few weeks. The customers and people that see it think it’s really neat.”

According to the Seattle Audubon.org BirdWeb website, nesting by common nighthawks is done on “open ground along rivers or other gravelly stretches.”

“The two eggs are laid directly on sand or gravel with no nest,” the website states.

The incubation lasts 18 to 20 days and the young fledge at about 18 days and feed independently at 25 days. “Within a month, they are on their own.”
