At approximately 840 pm a large night jar with broad head and stiff wing beats flew from the Tilden Woods area, across the VC parking lot, and dove into forest behind VC. At around 8 51 or so a group of 6 birders heard several times the call of the Chuck Wills Widow coming from South of the VC. To compare and contrast an Eastern Whip Poor Will responded a couple times to the chuck While common nighthawks flew overhead . 3 Night jars, 1 lot.
This bird should be audible very early tomorrow morning from just behind the visitor Centre.
The VC is located on point pelee drive in the park itself.
