Whip-poor-will is a nocturnal bird carrying our all its main functions in the dark.

This bird is a typical nightjar from North America producing a distinctive repetitive tune capable of inducing a state of trance, aiding or disturbing state of deep sleep or medication.

It is this almost psychedelic rhythm and tune that made this bird a topic of numerous legends. It is also frequently used as an auditory symbol of rural America, as in Washington Irving's story The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, or as a plot device.

For example, William Faulkner's short story, Barn Burning. This recording offers continuous Whip-poor-will birdsong recorded in natural habitat together with other birds and forest creatures.
