Woodcocks, Peepers, and Owls Walk

Lone Pine Marsh (Braham Tract)
Apr 22, 7:30 p.m.
We will start the evening listening for Spring Peepers and other frogs and toads as they display for mates. Marsh inhabitants such as ducks, geese, herons, beaver, and muskrat could be seen too. As dusk approaches we will listen for the distinctive beeping of displaying American Woodcocks (a bird), then perhaps even hear a Great Horned Owl as darkness falls.
Dress for the weather remembering it will get cooler as night comes; waterproof footwear is recommended as there may be a few muddy spots on the trail, as well as dew forming on the grass at dusk.
