					Bath-Highland Whip-Poor-Will Study – 2008
Information from various sources suggests that the whip-poor-will, a
neotropical migrant, may be disappearing from the mountains and valleys of
western Virginia. The Bath-Highland Bird Club is conducting a long-term
monitoring program for the whip-poor-will in Bath and Highland Counties.

The study will involve keeping daily records for the whip-poor-will by
volunteers who reside in these counties during the season, April through
September, when the whip-poor-will is in the area. The whip-poor-will’s
presence will be indicated by its familiar evening and nighttime song.

To take part in the study, use this calendar to indicate the days when the whip-
poor-will song is heard at your residence. Simply circle the dates (24-hour
days) when one or more whip-poor-wills are heard in the vicinity.
