Join us for this evening walk through the mixed habitatsof RockyFork Lakes Conservation Area in northern Boone County to listen forand hopefully hear the distinct sounds of Whip-poor-wills and Chuck-will’s-widows.These nocturnal birds are hard to see but fun to hear once their song beginsfrom dusk into darkness. We’ll meet before nightfall and walk out into thelandscape to watch and listen for these and other birds active on a (hopefully)nice spring evening. Remember to bring a flashlight for the walk back.
Meeting place: No carpool, meet at the southern parking lot at Rocky Fork.When entering the area, go straight past the outhouse parking lot and boatramp, following the road along the lake’s southern shore until it ends at acurving lot. Contact Eric Reuter withany questions.
