Woodcock Watch: Dance of the Timberdoodle – Squam Lakes Natural Science Center, Holderness NH

April 3 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Squam Lakes Natural Science Center offers a dusk watch for Woodcocks. Every spring the American Woodcock performs a wonderful courtship display over the fields and woodland edges of New Hampshire. They start at dusk with their rasping calls (known as peenting), then head for the skies on whistling wings. Then comes the downward zig zag aerial flight accompanied by the strangest combination of whistles and chirps – think of someone spinning the dial on an old transistor radio… that’s what it sounds like. Join Executive Director Iain MacLeod for an evening of woodcock watching and learn about this fascinating little bird. This program is for ages 8 and up. Youth must be accompanied by a registered adult.

Cost: $12/member; $15/non-member.

Advance registration required. To register for this event, and learn about upcoming programs, and membership go to www.nhnature.org or call 603-968-7194.
