Thank you for your interest in helping save our fading feathered friends. Your efforts will contribute to a collective of scientists that are working to characterize and conserve Nightjar habitat in The Land Between bioregion and beyond.
Whippoorwill and Common Nighthawks are nightjar species and they are most active in the evenings. They are also aerial insectivores, relying on flying insects as a major food source. Aerial insectivores have declined globally by approximately 75%.
Surveys require a team of two and a vehicle. They take place within one week of the full moon in June on designated routes and in the evening.
Once you register, check out our events pages for training workshops.
During the COVID-19 restrictions, we may provide training through online video-conferencing and will provide you with a link. The online system is easy to download and use.
Stay tuned for protocols and tools.
