Love is in the air! In the gentle dusk of early spring, American woodcocks perform a spectacular aerial mating display, a feast for the eyes and ears. We will learn about this peculiar member of the sandpiper family, then walk a short distance to witness 'peenting', spiral flights, and flybys of courting males. This will be an easy walk along level trails at dusk.
