The skydance of the American Woodcock is a wonderful sign of spring.
The skydance of the American Woodcock is a wonderful sign of spring. At dusk, male woodcock find an open field, begin calling from the courting ground, then take off into the sky with whistling calls then drop back down to the ground … all to impress female woodcock. Since this event takes place in the evening, be prepared to do more listening than watching. Some evenings may be better than others, there is no way to tell if the woodcock will cooperate.
COVID Precautions Will Be Taken: Masks must be worn and attendees will be seated at least 6 feet apart. If the weather is not conducive to viewing and the event cancelled, registrants will be notified.
What to Bring: Binoculars and your curiosity! For your comfort, bring a lawn chair, blanket and a warm beverage. Since the displays take place in the evening, dress warmly as it gets cooler when the sun sets.
