Woodcock Walk with Natural Area Preservation

April 12 @ 7:45 pm - 9:30 pm

**Note: We will depart the parking lot PROMPTLY at 8pm. If you would like to learn a little more about the American Woodcock, please arrive at 7:45**

Join Natural Area Preservation and Washtenaw Audubon as we partner to bring you another installment of our annual Woodcock Walk. If you have never witnessed the display of the American Woodcock, you should join us for this event. This wacky shorebird has evolved to live far away from water in the forest. After sunset, males will display by flying high into the air then engage in a circling dive that initiates their display call by moving air fast over three specially evolved feathers. Make sure to dress for the weather (walks happen rain or shine). You will be walking in the dark so bring a flashlight.

Registration is required and space is limited to provide a quality experience for all. We have scheduled two events this year to be able to accommodate everyone that is interested.
