This evening I went out looking for whip-poor-wills. As soon as I got to the site, I had crippling views of a singing male in my spotlight from ten feet away. By far the best looks Iíve ever had of this species.

364. Eastern Whip-poor-will

Up until now, spring migration has been rather slow, with new birds showing up in small numbers here and there. Today, however, there were lots of birds everywhere, and I added eight to my Year List.

365. Yellow-breasted Chat
366. Magnolia Warbler
367. Black-billed Cuckoo
368. Prairie Warbler
369. Veery
370. Nashville Warbler
371. Canada Warbler
372. Virginia Rail

The rail was completely unexpected and was a Preston County lifer, number 236.

I made the most of a three-hour break in heavy rain to get a little birding in. I managed to see two new birds for the year.

373. Short-billed Dowitcher
374. Cerulean Warbler

The dowitchers are rare birds in this part of the state. The 33 that I saw were probably part of a fall-out due to the rain.
