Sound of the Whippoorwill

I made a post last summer about a backcountry camping trip to Kawartha Highlands Provincial Park with a few friends (see post here). With paddle in hand, we j-stroked our way into the interior. My friend Melissa Parrott was up early one morning and captured the forest’s amazing sounds as dawn was breaking over Loucks Lake.

It’s almost as if the whippoorwill is the dawn’s alarm clock. Other birds awaken to sing, mosquitos are preying for their last blood before the heat of the day breaks, the beavers are foraging, and the woodpeckers are waking up the entire forest which includes the bull frogs in the nearby pond.

Take a look, and escape to the comforts of the wilderness!
