Description: Love is in the air! In the gentle dusk of early spring, American woodcocks perform a spectacular aerial mating display. We will gather indoors to learn a bit about this peculiar member of the sandpiper family, then drive to the trailhead and walk a short distance to witness 'peenting', spiral flights, and flybys of courting males. There will be an easy walk along level trails at dusk. For more information and to register, call 508.753.6087.
