The first spring migrants have returned to the Bent of the River, and we have some events planned to enjoy the migration! Timberdoodling--When: Friday, April 4th, 6:30 PM--Location: Bent of the River Visitor Parking Lot--Cost: Free for Members, $5 for Non-members. Come observe one of North America's most intriguing mating displays as the male American Woodcock struts, peents, flies, and whistles his way into the females favor. Past walks have proven very successful in witnessing this impressive display. In addition, we are also likely to see the courtship flight of Mourning Doves, and hear the classic "who cooks for you, who cooks for you all" call from our resident Barred Owls, all with a background symphony of Spring peepers. This is a very popular program and registration is limited so register soon. Rain cancels. Registration is required.
