The fabled American woodcock (Scolopax minor) courtship flights are a true sign of spring that occur across open landscapes often before the last snows have melted. Experience this spectacle at Noquochoke Wildlife Management Area in Dartmouth, a known woodcock staging area and location where the Massachusetts Division of Fisheries and Wildlife manages the species. Spend the first hour exploring the site for other bird activity that may occur at dusk, before settling in to hear and see woodcocks performing their aerial displays. An overview of the American woodcock, including a packet of background materials, will be provided. After woodcock activity has subsided, we’ll take a look for owls.

Participants should bring a camera, binoculars, flashlight, chair, and dress warmly! Pre-registration is required by 12 noon, Thursday, March 29.

Cost: Lloyd Center members: $8; Non-members: $10. Cost includes an information packet.
