Flight of the Woodcock!

American_Woodcock_Scolopax_minorThe Save the Prairie Society is hosting three evenings of Woodcock viewing this spring.  Please join us to see the after-dusk-courtship flight of the male woodcock as he does his best to attract a mate.  The intense serenade of the male chorus frogs should also be taking place.

Mark your calendars for the following dates to experience this dramatic springtime ritual:


  • Saturday –  March 29
  • Friday –  April 4 
  • Saturday – April 5

We will meet at 7 pm on each evening on the deck of the Prairie House, 11225 Constitution Drive, Westchester.  Please dress accordingly for the weather.  This is a free event.  (Photos by Mary Cray)  Woodcock Eggs
