Just what is a “Peent”? It’s the sound made by male woodcocks while performing their courtship ritual flights. Join local art teacher and excellent birder, Jeremy Ross, at Boyd’s Trail parking lot on Patoka River National Wildlife Refuge at 7:00 p.m. Eastern / 6:00 p.m. Central for a brief presentation on the woodcock. Then, we’ll walk over to Maxey Marsh Trail and hope the woodcocks are in the mood to put on a good 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. Consider arriving early to enjoy the sunset and walk some trails.
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.
