Join Wildlands Trust and the Friends of Myles Standish State Forest with birding specialist Glenn d'Entremont to listen for early summer birds as dusk approaches. While whip-poor-wills are becoming rare in the Northeast, Myles Standish is a stronghold for this remarkable bird, containing some of their favorite habitat.
