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. Spend the first part of the evening learning about the American woodcock, and then hike to watch for the courtship flight of the male. A short .25-mile walk to the viewing area will be on both paved and natural uneven surface trails. Please dress for the weather. For ages 7 or older. Registration required by Thursday, March 22: 708.946.2216.
