After three days of strong winds, last night had perfect conditions for listening to Whip-poor-will and Chuck-wills-widow on top of South Mountain. Whips were heard continuously along Ridge Road, one mile on either side of Cold Springs Road often two at a time. The single CWWI was first heard about a half mile east of Cold Springs Road.
The eastern portion of Ridge Road is very rough and I was glad I had an SUV. Clear Springs Road is mostly paved on the south side and is probably the best access from the north. SR233 probably is also a good access to where WPWI are reported on Ridge Road.
