Evening Woodcock Walk
March 9 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm
Love is in the air – and on the ground – at Huntley Meadows Park as male woodcocks perform their amazing courtship dance. Try to spot these feathered romantics on an “Evening Woodcock Walk” on two Saturdays in March.
Wander through the forest to one of the park’s largest meadows. Listen for the call of the male woodcock and hopefully see his elaborate courtship dance and flight. Prime courtship time is early evening, so bring a flashlight along.
The 90-minute program for adults begins at 5:45 p.m. on March 9 and at 7 p.m. on March 23, 2019. It includes an approximately 1.5-mile walk on uneven terrain. The program costs $8 per person, and it will be canceled if it rains. Meet at the South Kings Highway entrance to the park.
