Woodcock Walk at Barton Nature Area
Saturday, April 15, 2017
08:15pmBarton Nature AreaThe American Woodcock, is known for its unusual flying pattern during courtship, which can be seen at dawn and dusk in the spring. Park at the Barton Dam lot on Huron River Drive, across the street and slightly north/upriver from Bird Road, and follow the trail around the building to the foot bridge. We will meet right on the other side (the dam side) of the bridge at 8:15PM. PLEASE NOTE: Do not park in the Barton Nature Area lot on Huron River Drive just after Main Street, or else you will have a LONG walk back to your car in the dark. Please wear good walking shoes and dress warmly. (The temperature will drop quickly at sunset.) Bring a small flashlight to assist you in exiting the park after the program ends. Plan on returning to your car around 9:30 if all goes well.Leader: Ray Stocking
