Owl Woods (“Pear Orchard”) Woodcock Courtship Flight Field Trip
April 12 @ 7:00 pm
This will be an evening trip for woodcock courtship flight. If you’ve never seen this spectacle, prepare to be amazed: birds call noisily from the ground in grassy fields before spiraling rapidly up high, descending back down in a zigzagging noisy frenzy, only to start the cycle anew. An amazing sight!
Meet in the parking lot on the right side of Manitou Beach Road just off the Lake Ontario State Parkway and across from the Owl Woods trail head at 7:00 p.m. The Owl Woods Trails may be wet and muddy in spots. Boots are STRONGLY recommended. Bring a flashlight or head lamps.
