Evening Atlasing in Columbia County for Whip-poor-wills

  • Goose Pond Sanctuary W7503 Kampen Road Arlington, WI, 53911 United States (map)

The plan is to search for whip-poor-wills.  Volunteers will split into teams and search from roads.   We will have a planned route for each team.  If you are not experienced with the call of the whip-poor-will you will be paired up with others who can identify their call.  We may even hear some owls.  We will be searching a number of atlas blocks and can use 12 volunteers.

NOTE:  We need a clear night with the moon more than half full to conduct this count.  We will cancel the count if conditions are not ideal.
