This morning before daylight, I was drinking my coffee and having a bowl of oatmeal. I could hear the cry of the Whip-Poor-Will.
It had been many years since I’ve heard one. It reminded me of when long ago, we’d all sit on my Grandmas front porch at night and listen to the sounds of the night. We’d talk of days gone by, and what perhaps was yet to be.
I miss the slower pace of those days.

Yeah you don't hear them much, pretty much only thing I hear in the night is an owl hooting

I used to have an owl in Southaven that liked the tree by my window. I don’t hear quail any more either.

As much as I've been in the fields or woods, I don't even jump a covey anymore

John Shute it’s sad. My grandparents and mom and her sister survived one winter on the quail my grandpa killed and sold and they ate. Like you said, never even jump a covey now. Last ones I saw was nearly 30 years ago.

I am retired and fortunately, I live in a place where whip-poor-will is quite common. I love hearing them.
