Witness Courtship Rituals that are for the Birds at Huntley Meadows

Witness Courtship Rituals that are for the Birds at Huntley Meadows

In springtime, a young bird’s fancy turns to thoughts of love. Try to spy the woodcock’s amazing courtship dance with a stroll through Huntley Meadows Park.

Sign up for the “Evening Woodcock Walk” on Saturday, February 23, 2019, and journey through the park with a guide to one of Huntley’s largest meadows. Listen for the call of the male woodcock and hopefully see his elaborate courtship dance and flight. This program for adults involves a walk of approximately 1.5 miles on uneven terrain. It runs from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m., and the cost is $9.

Bring a flashlight and meet at the South Kings Highway entrance to the park. The program will be canceled in the event of rain.
