Just what is a “Peent”? It’s the sound made by male woodcocks while performing their courtship ritual flights. Join us at Boyd’s Trail parking lot at 5:30 Central time for a brief presentation on the woodcock, and then we’ll walk over to Maxey Marsh Trail and hope the woodcocks are in the mood to put on a show.
This event is open to all, regardless of age or experience; yet, since this is an event in the evening that is dependent on a fairly quiet environment, parents are encouraged to stay with their children.
Directions: From SR 357 (Main St.) in Oakland City, go east on SR 64 one mile to CR 1275E (look for Refuge Sign). Turn left (north) on 1275E; follow the signs to Snakey Point Marsh and continue on to the parking lot on the left at Boyd’s Trail.
