Nightjars of Wyalusing State Park

Sunday, July 4, 2007, Chris West will present a free program on the Nightjars of Wyalusing State Park. The program will be held at Point Lookout, beginning at 8:15PM. 

Nightjars are medium-sized nocturnal birds with long wings, short legs and very short bills that usually nest on the ground. Nightjars are sometimes referred to as goatsuckers from the mistaken belief that they suck milk from goats (the Latin for goatsucker is Caprimulgus). Some North American species are named as nighthawks.
