Woodcock Walk

  • Time: 6:30 PM
  • Price: Suggested donation $5
  • Overview

    Suitable for ages 8+.

    Join Albany Pine Bush Preserve Commission staff for a walk through the Pine Bush to watch the elaborate flight displays of the American Woodcock. The woodcock is a chunky little bird with a short neck, long bill and big eyes set high in a large head. During the mating season in early spring, male woodcocks perform amazing flight displays at dusk. Males circle high in the evening sky then plummet to the earth in a series of zigzags and whistling wings. We will start inside with a presentation and then continue outside for a 0.9 mile-hike.

    This program will meet inside the Discovery Center.
