I was in Prince Edward County yesterday and was lucky enough to hear a chuck-wills-widow!  For those of you who don't know what this bird is, it is a close relative of the whip-poor-will.  Both are nocturnal species that are notoriously hard to actually see.  Fortunately, they are easy to hear!  Below are links of video clips I took while I was out:

The call gets loudest at around 25 seconds in.

Here are several whip-poor-will calling for comparison.
