Join us for an evening hike to view a most unusual and interesting courtship ritual. The male’s display is a series of peents, twitters, and chirps as he first prances on the ground and then spirals rapidly upward, circles and drifts down. This spectacle takes place in fields and shrubby wetlands at twilight, and Drumlin Farm is a great place to view it.
Chickadee Birders at Drumlin Farm is for children ages 7-11, with a parent, who have an interest in birds and want to learn more. We will introduce the basics of birding, bird life, and seasonal migration through talks, activities, and field trips. Birding is a lifelong skill that can lead to greater overall interest in the outdoors and the environment; it's never too early to get started learning the birding basics.
