Publisher's Summary

Whip-poor-will is a nocturnal bird carrying out all its main functions in the dark. This bird is a typical nightjar from North America that produces a distinctive repetitive tune capable of inducing a state of trance, aiding deep sleep or meditation.

It is this almost psychedelic rhythm and tune that made this bird a topic of numerous legends. It is also frequently used as an auditory symbol of rural America, as in Washington Irving's story 'The Legend of Sleepy Hollow', or as a plot device, such as in William Faulkner's short story 'Barn Burning'. This recording offers continuous whip-poor-will birdsong recorded in natural habitat, together with other birds and forest creatures.
