As the sun begins to set, the stage is ready for the woodcock to perform his courtship flight. This unusual bird, also known as the Timberdoodle, performs an air-born ritual accompanied by a variety of unique sounds. It is a spring tradition not to be missed!

The Northfield Mountain Environmental Center and the Northfield Bird Club will hold a Woodcocks at Twilight: The Song of the Timberdoodle program at the Environmental Center on Route 63.

This program will begin with an indoor introduction, followed by a ½ mile twilight walk on level terrain to experience the courtship flight of the woodcock.

Participants should dress warmly, wear boots and dark clothes, and bring a blanket or portable chair to sit on. They should be prepared to sit quietly outdoors for 30 minutes.

The outdoor portion of the program will be cancelled in event of heavy rain.
