Chuck-will’s-widow – from Glen Wild Lake, Bloomingdale, NJ, 20:45, 6/8/2011. Passaic County, I know, but oh so close to Morris. He sounded off precisely at 20:45 and continued uninterrupted for eight minutes. Here is a brief recording, albeit distant and noisy, with a Northern Gray Treefrog, a Fowler’s Toad (if you listen closely enough) and other birds in the background. This is the Chuck-will’s-widow population that has been at this locale for over ten years.
