June Observation of the Month: Eastern Whip-poor-will

The June contest focused on observations submitted with sound recordings to celebrate the return of song to the forest and fields during breeding season. By popular vote, Kyle Jone's recording of an Eastern Whip-poor-will won hands down. Have a listen at http://www.inaturalist.org/observations/724970. This month is National Moth Week. Kyle will be selecting photos of moths for the July vote. THere's still time to get your awesome moth photo-observations submitted to iNaturalist Vermont, a project of the Vermont Atlas of Life.
