Timberdoodles Above

“Peent... Peent!” The American Woodcock is so expertly camouflaged that it quite nearly vanishes when it rests on the woodland floor. Not so during the breeding season. In the early spring, the males put on elaborate flights, dances and unique calls. We’ll scour the “dancing grounds” near Shawnee Prairie on Thursday, March 12th at 7:30pm to attempt to catch a glimpse at this annual spring ritual. This hike is free, but pre-registration is requested. Please call the Nature Center at 937.548.0165 to register.
