Sunrise at 7:01 AM. Temperature a mild 66°F. A full moon was setting over the lake and it was quite bright. The sky was clear and there was a northerly breeze. I listen for Whippoorwill and finally heard the full song this morning and recorded it.

    Details: Recorded it singing at 6:25 AM. Also quite certain another one was calling from a somewhat different location I think it will be audible on the recording. Note the incomplete "wheel" and "whip" calls which have been much more common here during the winter. They are best heard at beginning and end parts of recording.

    Details: So one in the central territory of the three historic foraging areas of the Castro’s. A loggerhead shrike attacked it and drove it further to the north. About half an hour later I encountered one in the south eastern territory but can’t be sure that it wasn’t the same bird. It was a mail.
