Timberdoodle Trek at Boot Lake Nature Preserve with Elkhart County Parks

It may have the build of a chubby sandpiper, but during courtship, a male American Woodcock (aka “Timberdoodle”) becomes a master acrobat of the sky. In this special evening bird walk, join us as we embark on a twilight trek at Boot Lake Nature Preserve to catch a glimpse of Timberdoodles spiraling in the sky. Participants are encouraged to bring hiking boots, bug spray, and wear long pants for the prairie.
