Subject: Whippoorwill pair on Thurmond-Chatham gameland
Was hiking a T-C gameland loop when I flushed a pair of Whippoorwills
off the side of a maintenance road beyond a gate on Spencer Ridge. They
each gave a couple of calls after flushing and didn't appear to fly too
far off into the brush. Perhaps a nesting pair? I didn't do anything
more than lean over after stopping in my tracks for fear of potentially
getting close enough to leave a scent trail that a predator might use to
find the nest. Sure be nice if they were nesting.
