Backyard 4/14--Eastern Whip-poor-will

They're baaaaack!

Or at least one is. Tonight, cleaning up in the kitchen after dinner, Shari & I heard our first Eastern Whip-poor-will of the year, almost a week later than last year. The weather, I'm sure, has been a factor, because tonight was the really first warm night of the year and, as if on cue, the whip-poor-will sang--albeit for only about 5 seconds, a very short song. I was hoping to get a recording but those 5 seconds are all we got tonight.

It won't be long, though, until its (their) song is incessant.
