Spring Woodcock Walk

Naturalists from the Town of Kent Conservation Advisory Committee (KCAC) and the Kent Conservation Foundation (KCF) will lead a walk through the Great Swamp Wildlife Management Area at 190 Cornwall Hill Road, Patterson, NY to enjoy spring delights – bird songs in the meadow at dusk, warm breezes, earthy scents and the chance to witness the bizarre, intricate and impressive mating flight of the American Woodcock, a small game bird that welcomes spring with a dance at dusk. 

Come learn about this extraordinary behavior and how to identify the sounds of this amazing bird. 

This is a short walk. We are walking from the parking area at 190 Cornwall Hill Road into the field and that is about it. Very suitable for most people to attend!
