Description

My husband and I heard a Common Poorwill calling at night in chamise-dominated chaparral along Pine Mountain Rd in southern Mendocino County (accessed from Cloverdale). We first heard it calling from quite a ways away (at least half a mile, as the crow flies) and were able to track it down to within 25m or so. It was calling pretty loudly below the road. Another could be heard calling in the distance, toward the north.

I've uploaded a video to YouTube at http://youtu.be/g274PF7l80M that captures the calls. You can't see the bird, but it should be good enough to confirm the id. The bird was close enough that we could hear a third syllable at the end of the call: "poor-will-ow". That's the first time I've ever heard that. You can just barely make it out in the video.
