Woodcock Watch and Owl Prowl

Join Jennings staff and members of the Bartramian Audubon Society on Saturday, March 18 from 7:00 – 10:00 PM for a woodcock watch and owl prowl.  After a brief indoor presentation, the group will venture out onto the prairie area trails in hopes of hearing owls and seeing the male woodcocks demonstrating their courtship display. This program is free but space is limited and pre-registration is required no later than Wednesday, March 15. Register by clicking the Green button to the right or by calling the Center at 724-794-6011.

The American Woodcock is a shorebird that has adapted to live away from the water, often found in open or shrubby areas.  The male Woodcock has a unique courtship display in the springtime used to attract females. This display can often be observed at dusk and into the night.  Barred Owls are common in Pennsylvania but are primarily nocturnal and so largely go unseen.  They prefer a mixed forest and are typically found near water.  Barred Owls are territorial and will often respond when their call is played.  

If you need an accommodation to participate in park activities due to a disability, please contact the park you plan to visit. With at least three days notice, interpreters for people who are deaf or hard of hearing are available for educational programs.
