Annual Woodcock Walk

March 02, 2019 04:45 pm - 07:30 pm
Location: The Clifton Institute, 6712 Blantyre Road, Warrenton, Virginia
Category: Nature Walk

The American Woodcock is one of our stealthiest birds, but it’s also one of the most fun to watch when they do show themselves. Join The Clifton Institute at 4:45PM to hear a brief talk about these interesting birds. We will then go out into our fields where we will be able to watch and hear the birds perform. Cost $10 per person at the door. Register online

On early spring evenings, the males perform their mating displays, flying high into the air and falling back to the ground, making calls and sounds with their wings as they do so.

This is one of our longest running and most popular events. Hope we’ll see you there!
