Voices of the Night

Sorry, registration for this event is full.

Leader:    Fraser Gibson    fn.gib@sympatico.ca

When:    Thursday May 5 at 8:00pm for approximately 1.5 hours

Location:    Huron Natural Area, Kitchener. Meet at the parking lot at 801 Trillium Dr.

Description:    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.

Bring binoculars, a flashlight and dress warmly. Majority will be on maintained trails. Some may venture a short distance off the trail for a better view of woodcocks. Washrooms may not yet be open for the season and at this later time of day.

Registration is required. Please contact Fraser Gibson to register.
