Interested in conducting a surveys in May and June? Because this project features a short list of birds that are relatively easy to learn to identify, just about anyone can help. Keen listening, a vehicle to travel between roadside survey points, and the willingness to survey after dark are needed.
If you’ve got what it takes, or to learn more about becoming a volunteer, contact project biologist, Sara Zahendra. If there are survey routes yet to be adopted, we’d love to have you join the nightjar team!
Can’t quite find the time but you are watching birds and you’ve even encountered an Eastern Whip-poor-will?
You can still contribute extremely valuable data on bird abundance and distribution. Add your sightings of Whip-poor-wills and other birds to Vermont eBird, a project of the Vermont Atlas of Life. Thanks!
