Acton Conservation Trust member and local birder, Al Sgroi, will help us view the fascinating courtship ritual of the American Woodcock. The males display a series of peents, twitters, and chirps as they prance on the ground, then spiral rapidly upward, circle and drift down, whistling as they go. Since this is a “crepuscular” or twilight-active bird, we will meet at sunset to watch and listen for the incredible sky dance. No pets on this prowl, thank you!

Please click here to register and meeting location will be sent to you a few days before the event. The location will be in Acton or Boxborough, depending upon where Woodcocks are active.
