Northfield Mountain, Woodcocks

April 17 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

As the sun begins to set, the stage is ready for the woodcock to perform his courtship flight. This unusual bird, also known as the Timberdoodle, performs an air-born ritual accompanied by a variety of unique sounds. It is a spring tradition not to be missed! This program will begin with an indoor introduction, followed by a ½ mile twilight walk on level terrain to experience the courtship flight of the woodcock.

Dress warmly, wear boots and dark clothes. Bring a blanket or portable chair to sit on. Please be prepared to sit quietly outdoors for 30 minutes. Program co-sponsored with the Northfield Bird Club. Heavy rain cancels.

Wednesday, April 17; 6:45 – 8:30 p.m.

For ages 10 and older
