About 5 months ago?   They're not that rare up in the hills.

They are common here in the Ozarks of North Arkansas.  You can hear the every spring.  It's a very comforting sound.

The older folks around here will not set out their tomato and pepper plants until they hear whippoorwills in the spring, they believe the freezing weather is over, and is a competition to be the first to hear one. Usually around the middle of April.

We used to have a place up on Norfork. You could listen to them every evening!
