Woodcock Walk

Description

Join the South East region staff as we search for American Woodcocks. As the sun sets, we will witness the twisting and turning courtship ritual of the 'timberdoodle' as he calls and performs his dance before launching into the air in a spiral flight with a dramatic whistling return to the ground.

Checking registration status.
