Whip-poor-wills and Chuck-will’s-widows at Rocky Fork Lakes CA

May 18 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

MRBO’s Education Coordinator, Laura Semken, will be attending Columbia Audubon Society’s Whip-poor-will and Chuck-will’s-widow hike. Join them for this evening walk through the mixed habitats of Rocky Fork Lakes Conservation Area in northern Boone County to listen for and hopefully hear the distinct sounds of Whip-poor-wills and Chuck-will’s-widows. These nocturnal birds are hard to see but fun to hear once their song begins from dusk into darkness.


Meet at 7:30 p.m. The walk will take place along a level trail/service road, and there will be time for a bit of late-day birding before the sun sets around 8:20 p.m. Expect to hike ~1.5 miles (round trip) over ~1.5–2 hours.

Meeting place: Meet at the southern parking lot at Rocky Fork. When entering the area, go straight past the outhouse parking lot and boat ramp, following the road along the lake’s southern shore until it ends at a curving lot.
