Woodcock Of Rush City

Tuesday, Apr 16, 2019 at 8:00pm

River Rd & 530th St
Rush City, MN 55069

The American Woodcock songs and Sky Dance are more than just remarkably entertaining. American Woodcock both breed and migrate farther north through this peaceful, prime habitat in the St Croix Valley.

The American Woodcock is an incredible woodland shorebird with unique adaptations for seeing, feeding, and courting. They pay little attention to bird watchers even as courting males spiral high, then come down, twittering, to land in nearly the same takeoff place. Viewers normally have had their choice of several pair to approach for closer observation of the Sky Dancers in this easily-accessible area. (Of course,  there are no guarantees, wild birds being what they are, even when so single-minded.) We will discuss the unique qualities of these birds, and what makes this place so special for both resident and migrant populations.
