https://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/Eastern_Whip-poor-will/lifehistory As a kid I would visit a large local and very rural lake during summer months. Id spend my days swimming, fishing, building forts, running through the woods, and chasing and catching wildlife. In the evenings it was cool and would sit on the porch and listen to whip-poor-wills and crows calling, echoing off the lake and through the trees. It was so peaceful and even now if I close my eyes I can almost be there again. I looked up some information on them and if you look at the link you can read about them. Theres information on habitat, identification, food, breeding, and at the bottom theres a tab for maps and sounds. Apparently their numbers have decreased by 75% in the last 60 years which is quite a lot. I hope they/we can do something to improve their numbers because its one of those things, for a lot of us, that made the outdoors so special.
