Mexican Whippoorwill continues 06 May 2020

This evening, 05/06/2020, the Mexican Whippoorwill continued on the Noble Canyon Trail south of Pine Creek Rd in the Laguna Mountains. At 8:05 pm Chris Staurovski heard it singing in the oaks 0.6 miles down the trail, which is the location of the first switchback. Tonight eight of us were able to mask up and socially distance while recording the vocalizations, no playbacks were used or needed. While the Whippoorwill moved around often it was only seen briefly in flight

As has been mentioned previously there is little to no cell service while on the Noble Canyon Trail, it is rough and steep in the dark. Don’t go alone.

P.s. Lots of toads on the road on the way out tonight, please drive considerately.
