A report from the Albany Pine Bush Preserve says Whip-poor-wills are becoming rare in the Northeast. However, Myles Standish State Forest is still a stronghold for this remarkable bird and contains some of their favorite habitat.
The bird walk is scheduled for 6:30. The group will drive to the Fire Tower Parking Lot 6 on Bare Hill Road and walk some of the Wildlife Management areas off of Three Cornered Pond Road until sundown (at 8:20). There will be a full moon, which will help the visibility after sunset. You may want to bring a hand lamp or flashlight for after sunset.
No dogs at this event, please.
