As for nesters, years ago, while in Ottawa, Ontario, I was privileged to observe a Common Nighthawk on pebbled roof right downtown. 2 little heads peeped out from her wings. The building across the street had nesting Peregrines. The Peregrines are still breeding in Ottawa, but I never saw a breeding Nighthawk there again. The numbers of them calling and hawking around at night are almost gone.
In the past, these little birds could have used gravel pits, beaches, low cliffs, anywhere they could find pebbles.

I would see and hear them all the time playing tennis on the courts next to the school. It's been many, many years (maybe 25) since that, but Ali's post about Kildeer on school roofs reminded me of that. I was always happy to see them. Evergreen in Jericho
