Common Poorwills remain one of the least-studied nightjars in North America. On MPG Ranch they occur at high density in our mid-elevation shrublands and open forests. We’ve tackled most aspects of their life history including breeding phenology, fidelity to breeding and natal sites, home range size, habitat use, and diet. Our most recent work has included the use of nanotags to better understand migratory routes and overwintering destinations. This report highlights some of our major findings and suggested next steps for poorwill research.
