Woodcock Walk

March 24 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Meet at the parking area (directions below) at 7:00 pm. Bring a flashlight for use on the way out. Wear sturdy shoes for a short downhill walk.
American Woodcock courtship takes place at dusk. The males can be heard making a nasal “peent” call. A little shuffling dance can sometimes be seen. Then, they launch upwards in a spiraling flight into the darkness, circle a bit, and return to earth.
Led by Jim Van Gelder.
Space is limited. To make your reservation for the trip, email us at info@orangecountynyaudubon.org
Directions: From Middletown (Rt 211E); to left on Goshen Tpk (Rt 101); to right on Scotchtown/Collabar Rd (Rt 47); to a right on Tamms Rd (opposite King Rd). Go up hill on Tamms Rd and the parking lot is on the right side around the curve in the road.
