The Whip-poor-will was once a familiar bird across much of New Hampshire, but is rare today except in a few scattered locations. To learn more about this poorly-known species, avian conservation biologist Pam Hunt initiated a monitoring program in New Hampshire in 2003 and followed up with habitat research from 2008 to 2012. In this program she’ll provide an overview of whip-poor-will ecology, discuss conservation issues facing the species, and wrap up with some of the results of her research program.
