Woodcock Watch

7am - 8pm

Wachusett Meadow Wildlife Sanctuary

American woodcocks are inland relatives of coastal shorebirds, favoring wet forests and fields, and spending much of their time incredibly well-hidden by their cryptic plumage. However, from late March to late April, woodcocks put on incredible courtship flight displays during their mating season, spiraling 300 feet into the air before descending rapidly to the ground. Witness this not-to-be-missed sunset display during one or both of these evenings.
