The Eastern Screech Owl he found was calling away (by a very small road
pulloff) and was keeping time with a Whip-poor-will accross the road, In
fact that road had one of the best Whip-poor-will demonstrations we had
heard in years. At least 7 different birds were singing along Chippewa Cty
Road 40's 3 mile length between State Highway 212 and the Renville Cty line.
And no traffic along the asphalt road.
