I lived in Boulder for a year and birded in Lyons many times. Common
Nighthawks can definately be found there and are a good possibility
even at 8,000 feet. I obviously cant say whether you had a Poorwill or
a Nighthawk but either is a possibility.
I never managed to find a Poorwill myself, another western bird that I
missed and now have to make special trips to find :(
