The Monmouth County Audubon Society woodcock walk scheduled for Saturday, March 11 at Big Brook Park has been postponed due to expected freezing temperatures, which would keep the woodcock from displaying.
The new date and time for this field trip will be next Sunday, March 19, at 6:30 pm.
If you haven't experienced this, the woodcock courtship flight is definitely a birders' "bucket list" item!
On the subject of woodcocks, I got to experience it myself last night along Browns Dock Road, next to the S.P.U.R. fields near Navesink River Road in Middletown (Huber Woods area), where there were at least three American Woodcock peenting and flying around. Ah, spring.
