Looking for a sure sign of spring? Join Ken Elkins, Director of the CT Audubon Coastal Center, as we search for this shy bird species, the American Woodcock. Come experience the amazing upward spiral courtship flight as the male cuts loose to perform his mating ritual to impress the female.

This event requires standing still in the dark, listening for the bird call and watching arial flight. Ages 8 years and above. All children must be accompanied by an adult. Please dress appropriately for early spring weather, hiking/snow/mud boots, hats, gloves, hand warmers, etc and bring a flashlight or headlamp. Wind or heavy precipitation will postpone the event to the rain date of April 19th.

No refunds unless both April 18th and rain-date of April 19th are cancelled due to colder temperatures, high wind or rainy weather. Limited to 17 guests. Advanced registration required.
