Please start sending your posts to texbirds@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Bob, TexBirders:I camped at Park Chalk Bluff (Uvalde Co.) in late March and late May and heard Com. Poorwills (1 to 2) (COPO) each night or early morning (e.g. 3/22-23 and 5/22/2012). I camped in the pecan grove at the far E end of the park and the birds were calling in the dry uplands away from the river (N of the camping area). I did *not* hear Chuck- will's-widows on either visit.
Also, on March 31, I heard COPO on a private ranch in extreme S. Real Co., S of Camp Wood on the E side of TX 55 in Hill Country terrain, just 8 mi N of Park Chalk Bluff.
