A bird only active at night, the Whip-poor-will has mottled brown plumage, and is found in dry, open woodlands with little underbrush in most of the eastern United States, and parts of southeastern and south-central Canada, southwestern United States, Mexico, and into northern Central America.
As their scientific name suggests, whip-poor-wills are very vociferous. John Burroughs, famous naturalist of the Burroughs Audubon Society in Kansas City, once heard a Whip-poor-will make 1,088 vocal repetitions before pausing.
