In Search of the American Woodcock
The American Woodcock is well camouflaged with brown dappled leaf tones, and its foraging behavior keeps the bird’s movements close to the ground making it hard to spot during the daytime. But at dawn and again at dusk during late winter and early spring these birds really put on a show. Join SOFO for a short walk through the field and forest of Poxabogue County Park at dusk. As darkness falls, we will listen for the American Woodcock male’s “peent” call and watch for his aerial acrobatics as he tries to woo a female. This program has limited
enrollment. Program fee will also provide non-members with free admission to the museum on a day of their choice. Members are free. Advanced reservations are required for all events. To register for this program, please contact us at [email protected] or call 631-537-9735.
