Woodcock Walk

Come join the local bird enthusiasts in pursuit of one of the most unusual birds found in Pennsylvania.
The woodcock, also known as the timberdoodle, night partridge, big-eye, bogsucker and mudsnipe.
This bird has seen a dramatic decline due to loss of Young Forest Habitat over the past many decades.
Pennsylvania is currently at a 50-year-low for Young Forest Habitat. Department of Conservation and
Natural Resources (DCNR) has teamed up with Wildlife Management Institute, Ruffed Grouse Society
and National Wildlife Turkey Federation to create Young Forest Habitat at several locations throughout
Moraine State Park. Join the Park Naturalists and local members of the bird chapter Bartramian
Audubon Society in search of woodcock to see them perform their spring mating ritual by performing
aerial acrobatics and learn the importance of Young Forest Habitats for all walks of wildlife.
