WOODCOCK WALK
AT PLUM CREEK NATURE CENTER
Date: Saturday, 03/16/2019
Time: 7:00 PM to 8:30 PM
Age: Ages 7 or older
Contact Phone: 708.946.2216
Location: Plum Creek Nature Center

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 discovering just how amazing this bird is, then hike to watch the courtship flight of the male.
