Subject: Whip-poor-wills: another Caprimulgid in trouble.
Many years ago, I would drive to the Muncy Hills in Columbia County on a dirt road to listen to the Whip-poor-wills.  I would see their red eye shine in the headlights as they rested and looked for insects on the road.  One evening I drove to the spot, and my heart sank. The road had been heavily oiled, and was a slippery, gooey mess.  I never returned. I had gotten wonderful recordings of their songs,but I haven’t listened to them since.Stanley C. Stahl
