One of the great sights of early spring is the mating display of the American Woodcock. These shorebirds are common but require a special effort to see well.
We will be driving 45 minutes to the Munster area to look for these birds as we know this area well. Meet at 6:30pm at the Park and Ride on County Road 29 just north of highway 417.
Bring binoculars and a flashlight and have kids wear snowpants or rain pants as we will be laying on the ground at times. It will be a bit of a late night for kids as these birds are only active at dusk and after dark but it should be a lot of fun and well worth the loss of a few winks. If we are lucky we may also hear or even see an owl as the area is great for a variety of wildlife.
Adults without kids also welcome!
