Woodcock Night View

  • Tuesday, March 07, 2023
  • 6:30 PM - 8:30 PM
  • Riethmiller Rd. DNR Parking Lot


03/06 update: 

I scouted tonight and found 7 o'clock is too early.  So I'm moving up the start time to 6:30 PM.  We should have a good moon and clear sky.  Most of the remining snow should be burned off as well.  It is wet out there so muck boots would be a good choice.   I heard peenting as well as arial display sounds.

Bring a flashlight and see the annual breeding spectacle of the American Woodcock , a.k.a. Timberdoodle, peenting at the Riethmiller Road grassland.  This prairie is a reliable and excellent observation location.

NOTE: This is an EVENING event starting at 6:30 PM.

This event will be ON the full moon so this may help with visibility. 
It is March, we are in Michigan, and the sun will be setting-so dress warmly.

Meet at DNR parking lot, north side of Riethmiller Rd., west of St. Jacob's church.

This is a parking lot in the prairie area, not the parking lot that is in the wooded area east of the church.
