03/16/24 - Woodcock/Timberdoodle Watch
Woodcocks, otherwise known as Timberdoodles, are a fascinating bird that migrate back to wetlands in late February/early March to establish territory and find a mate. Superbly camouflaged against the leaf litter, the brown-mottled American Woodcock walks slowly along the forest floor, probing the soil with its long bill in search of earthworms. Unlike its coastal relatives, this plump little shorebird lives in young forests and shrubby old fields across eastern North America. Its cryptic plumage and low-profile behavior make it hard to find except in the springtime at dawn or dusk, when the males show off for females by giving loud, nasal peent calls and performing dazzling aerial displays. Attendees will be on the lookout and keenly listening to see if we can catch some Woodcock males performing their mating dance! Schiff has the perfect habitat at the Mount Paul Preserve, adjacent to Mendham Township's Burnett Brook Preserve. This program is recommended for ages 10 and up. No pets, please. Members fee is $10/person. Non- member fee is $15/person. Pre-registration ensures that you receive weather cancellation notices.
