Have you ever seen or heard a woodcock? They are spectacular birds! The male Woodcock performs a very interesting mating ritual during the twilight hours in early spring and on April 23rd we’re heading out to catch a glimpse!

Led by long-time board member and bird enthusiast Dana Little, we will walk the trails of the historic Purinton Homestead Conservation Area in West Bowdoin in hopes of observing this rare sight.  We’ll also be listening for barred owls and other inhabitants of the preserve.

Check out this website with great information about the woodcock: musicofnature.com

We will meet at the entrance to the trail at 6:30pm. Please wear warm clothes and waterproof boots-preferably tall rain boots and bring water.

We hope you will join us!

Directions: The Purinton Homestead Preserve kiosk and trail entrance is not far from 50 West Road in Bowdoin (you can enter this address into your GPS but then find where the field meets the wooded area and look for a sandy informal parking area, which is adjacent to the trailhead).
