Blue Hills Trailside Museum to host Woodcock Walk event

Learn more about woodcocks with Mass Audubon

Meet at the museum on Saturday, March 30th at 6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. to learn a little about these strange birds before venturing out in search of a male bird displaying. Because of its solitary habits and superb camouflage, the American Woodcock is nearly impossible to see, except during its breeding displays. These little birds are full of surprises. Would you expect to find a shorebird at the edge of a forest? How many other birds can sing with their wings? And are there any other animals with eyes almost in the back of their heads? You have to be truly strange to earn the nickname of “timberdoodle” or “bog sucker.” (Fowl weather date for this program is Saturday, April 6th.)

To learn more about this event:

Registration is required and the price is $8 for Mass Audubon members and $10 for non-members. Please head to this link to register: https://www.massaudubon.org/program-catalog/blue-hills/62586-woodcock-walk
