Whip-poor-will Walk

Today, 7 p.m.

Have you even heard a strange bird singing in the background of a movie and wondered what it was? You may have been hearing the song of the Whip-poor-will.

Join Nancy Landry, refuge volunteer and avid birder, for an evening of listening for the song of the Whip-poor-will and other nighttime birds. Participants will meet at the deck of the visitor contact station at the refuge’s Parking Lot 1. Dress appropriately for weather conditions. Registration is required.
