    Interested in conducting a survey 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 Sara Zahendra at . 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!
