A Family Friendly Outing!

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. The old fields at Huron Natural Area have been favoured by this species in the past so hopefully this late evening ritual will again be observed. 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.

Walk is mostly maintained trails; some off trail for a better view of Woodcocks.

Washrooms may not be open. Bring binoculars, a flashlight, and dress warmly.
