Experience the ‘Voices of the Night’ as we focus on American Woodcock, but also listen for and identify amphibian and possibly owl calls. In April and early May, the American Woodcock partakes in an interesting flight and sound mating display. Hopefully this late evening ritual will be on display in Huron Natural Area’s old fields. The nearby wetlands should provide the habitat necessary for a variety of singing amphibians and the woodlands are known to be home territory for owls.

HNA footpaths are part of an established trail system. Bring binoculars and a flashlight and dress warmly. No RSVP required. The washrooms are open during the day and early evening at this time of year but will be locked sometime after dark.
