Tracking Timberdoodles (Friday, March 13, 6:30 pm; Registration required)
This evening program will target the American Woodcock, also known as the Timberdoodle, on its singing ground. Join us for a brief information session and bird walk, after which we will settle in to (hopefully) hear and see male woodcocks during their amazing courtship displays, known as “sky dances”, in the dusk twilight.
Bring a flashlight, binoculars, and dress for the weather, keeping in mind that the temperatures will be dropping as night falls. Appropriate footwear is necessary as the walk will cover approximately ½ mile over uneven ground that may be muddy or frozen.
Registration is required as this event will be cancelled or rescheduled if there is inclement weather or unfavorable conditions. Please register by contacting the leaders or through Valley Forge Audubon Society’s MeetUp group at. www.meetup.com/Valley-Forge-Audubon-Society-Calendar-of-Events/
