Where Have All the Whip-poor-wills Gone?

Where Have All the Whip-poor-wills Gone?

Last summer about this time of year my family and I were camped in a far corner of a local campground, up against a recently harvested woodlot. One evening, we were sitting around the campfire when we heard the distinctive song of a Whip-poor-will coming from the logged area. We were thrilled!  You see, it's become rare to hear a Whip-poor-will, and that's why we were so excited to hear one around the campfire.

Eastern Whip-poor-will populations have declined 60% over the past 45 years. Why Have Their Numbers Dwindled So Much?
