Birds & Brews: Flight of the Timberdoodle
$10 per person, Pickering Creek Audubon Center
As winter breaks and spring begins to emerge, the timberdoodle start dancing. At dusk the male woodcock spirals into the sky, creating a trilling sound with its wings. Then he descends, fluttering, warbling and zigzagging back to the spot he began. This unusual mating ritual will take place in Pickering Creeks’ warm season grass meadows which provide ideal habitat for this annual late winter event. We’ll spend a portion of our time in our rustic classroom learning the basics about this unique upland shorebird before going out at dusk, with a local brew in hand, to listen to the sounds of the evening, including owls, frogs and ducks overhead before focusing in on hearing and seeing the woodcocks display.
