Woodcock Walk – Thursday, April 11, 2024
7:00 PM – 8:30 PM – Pavilion #7 McDanel’s Launch Area (North Shore) – Moraine
Come join the local bird enthusiasts in pursuit of one of the most unusual birds found in
Pennsylvania. The woodcock, also known as the timberdoodle, night partridge, big-eye,
bogsucker and mudsnipe. This bird has seen a dramatic decline due to loss of Young Forest
Habitat over the past many decades. Pennsylvania is currently at a 50-year-low for Young
Forest Habitat. Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (DCNR) has teamed up
with Wildlife Management Institute, Ruffed Grouse Society and National Wildlife Turkey
Federation to create Young Forest Habitat at several locations throughout Moraine State Park.
Join the Park Naturalists and local members of the bird chapter Bartramian Audubon Society in
search of woodcock to see them perform their spring mating ritual by performing aerial
acrobatics and learn the importance of Young Forest Habitats for all walks of wildlife.
