Whippoorwill

by admin on January 22, 2012

“Whippoorwill” was written by Anne Chapin at the First Girl Scout Training School in Massachusetts in 1921 and has been a favorite ever since. It sings about a small, brown bird of North America that nests on the ground and comes out only at night. It is named for its call, whippoorwill, whippoorwill.
