Subject: Eastern whip-poor-will in Halifax County, NC
Birders, had my first-of-season whip this morning. Only called a dozen times or so but good enough! I think this is my earliest record by almost 2 weeks for this site—usually get them around 28-30 March.

By the way, I’ve recorded whips here (as breeding residents) annually since 1963! The exact location is Norman Road about 2 miles SW of Ringwood, Halifax County, NC. 200’ elevation on the Fall Zone (Piedmont/Coastal Plain).
