About This Activity

Description

As the sun sets, the male woodcock makes his way to the edge of a field and prepares for his extraordinary courtship performance. Normally timid and elusive, the woodcock is readily observed during the early spring breeding season when he leaves the safety and cover of the forest to attract a mate. The first part of the evening will be spent learning interesting facts about this elusive and amazing bird. Then we'll hike to view the courtship flights of the male.


All participants are required to wear a mask.
The hike is approximately 1 mile on both paved and natural surface trails over uneven terrain.
Be sure to dress for the weather as we will stand in place for a bit to listen for the calls and look for the woodcock's flight.
If you have any questions, please call us at 708.946.2216.
