Watching for Woodcocks

This usually secretive shorebird species shrugs off his enigmatic ways in early spring in hopes of wooing any passing females. Many male birds have bright colors or other ways to impress females; the American Woodcock takes it one step further, launching into the air, feathers twittering only to dive quickly towards the ground then resuming his nasal “peent” calls. Join the Darke County Parks as we take a hike to Watch for Woodcocks! The hike will occur on Thursday, March 6th at 6:00pm. Meet at Shawnee Prairie Preserve for this FREE hike!
