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, Sarah Carline at gro.s1506268446eidut1506268446socet1506268446v@eni1506268446lracs1506268446. 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!
