Spring Dance of the Woodcock at the Negri Nepote Native Grassland
March 29, 2019 @ 7:15 pm - 9:00 pm
One event on March 29, 2019 at 7:15 pm
Led by Chris and Paula Williams, Associate Naturalists. The American Woodcock, a long billed woodland bird probes in soft wet soil of wetlands and eats its weight in worms each day. Woodcock return to Franklin Township in late winter or early spring to mate and nest. Males of the species begin calling and performing an aerial courtship-display-flight when the afternoon shadows are almost gone. We’ll hear more than we see. Franklin Township’s open space program will, for the 15th consecutive year, sponsor guided nature walks on Township open space parcels. Kindly RSVP at [email protected] or 732.873.2500 x6279.
