Dusk run for whip-poor-wills and night herons

Observations

  1. Number observed: 1

    Comments: **Rare, I believe still in single digits for recorded sightings in Essex County. At S-curves directly across from sassafras grove. I was traveling slowly with windows down listening for whip-poor-wills and was surprised to hear this calling from very close to the road. I immediately hit record on phone. Very fortunate since it stopped calling within about 2 min. Sound file attached.

  2. Number observed: 5

    Comments: One seen sitting in road at wardens. Didn’t notice it until I was nearly on top of it & it flew. Thankfully I was only traveling about 5mph unlike several vehicles earlier which were traveling 35-40
