(postponed from May 7) Join us for this evening walk through the mixed habitats of Rocky Fork Lakes Conservation Area in northern Boone County to listen for and 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 begins from dusk into darkness. We’ll meet before nightfall and walk out into the landscape 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 boat ramp, following the road along the lake’s southern shore until it ends at a curving lot. Contact Eric Reuter with any questions.
