Sensations Hiking Series: Woodcock Walk
Join Darke County Parks for a hiking series exploring the sensations of
spring. On March 9th at 6:30 at Shawnee Prairie Preserve on St. Rt. 502
just west of Greenville we’ll begin searching for spring as we watch
the skies for the American Woodcock performing its mating flight and
dance. Remember to dress for the weather. In the event of severe
weather, call the Nature Center to find out about possible
cancellation. For more information about this or any other park
district programs, please call the Nature Center at (937) 548-0165 or
check out their Facebook page. More hikes will be forthcoming
throughout the season.
Photo-The the male woodcock, or timberdoodle, has a unique and
beautiful courtship flight, and because of this, the bird is welcomed
as a harbinger of spring.
