Eastern Whip-poor-will

Previously reported bird in the western part of the Hallett Sanctuary, possibly flew a bit to the east but could have (more likely) landed in a nearby tree. Distinctive "whip-poor-will" song heard clearly and repeatedly at fairly close range, then seen flying from tree to tree and perched for a bit. Medium-sized bird with bat-like flight, fairly square tail. When perched it was mostly obscured, but the slightly rounded, very nightjar-like head was visible. Awesome!
