Wehr Nature Center is one of the few spots in Milwaukee County to view the iconic “sky dance” of the American Woodcock. After a short presentation about these unique shorebirds of the woods, we’ll head out on a sunset stroll to witness one of nature’s most spectacular scenes. As we wait for the woodcocks to kick off their night, we’ll listen for wood frogs and other ephemeral pond favorites. Then it’s off to the prairie where male woodcocks are establishing territories. They make squeaky “peent” calls and then explode up in flight before acrobatically tumbling back down to the ground.
