Chiwaukee Prairie Bird Walk
April 19 @ 6:30 PM - 8:30 PM
We will meet along the roadside just north of 121st Street and 2nd Avenue. Please refrain from parking along 121st Street but rather park along the west side of 2nd Avenue.
Meet by 6:30 P.M. We’ll walk the trails in search of early spring migrants. We may also hear Wilson’s Snipe ‘winnowing’ as the males perform their courtship displays.
Or, meet by 7:30 P.M. at parking area. We’ll walk a portion of the trails and await to hear the “peents” and view the aerial dances of the twittering “Timberdoodle”, the American Woodcock, at twilight.
The American Woodcock may begin call just after 7:45 P.M. (depending if skies are overcast or clear) and will conclude sometime between 8 and 8:30 P.M.
Recommendations: Wear waterproof boots, dress warmly, and bring a flashlight.
NOTE: Please check back on the day of the event for any updates/cancellations due to weather (strong winds, thunderstorm activity, moderate- heavy rain), etc. We will post an update when possible.
