Where Have All Our Whip-poor-wills Gone?
Wednesday, April 2
The far-carrying song of the Eastern Whip-poor-will is less and less often heard in our woodlands. We will learn about this mysterious species's declines at the Three Rivers Birding Club meeting on Wednesday, April 2.
The meeting will be held at the Phipps Garden Center, 1059 Shady Avenue in Shadyside. Doors will open at 6:30pm for socializing, a business meeting will begin at 7:30, and the program will start at 8.
Patrick Snickles, a Pennsylvania Game Commission wildlife conservation officer in Indiana County, will tell us about the Whip-poor-will and its status in the state. A Pennsylvania native, he has a bachelor's degree in Wildlife and Fisheries Science from Penn State University and attended the game commission's Ross Leffler School of Conservation in 1995-1996.
