Woodcock Walk

Monday, March 06 at 06:00 pm

Richard Crossley/VIREO via Auduboi

**Update 2/1/23: Registration will open soon.**

 

Join us for an evening walk to witness one of the most remarkable signs of spring, the display of the American Woodcock. The walk will end by (hopefully!) watching the remarkable courtship dance and song of this secretive bird.
To learn more about the display of the woodcocks, you can view this recorded program:
