Join the Finger Lakes Land Trust for an Evening Woodcock 
Walk<> at the 
Logan Hill Nature Preserve in Candor on Saturday, April 28 from 6:30–8:30 pm.

Evenings in the spring bring ample opportunity to witness the stunning breeding 
display of the American Woodcock. To attract the attention of a female, the 
male performs a series of upward spirals to reach a height of 200-350 feet in 
the air, producing a harmonious twittering sound as he goes. He zigzags down, 
chirping all the way, and then lands silently —hopefully, next to a female. 
Join us at the Logan Hill Preserve, just outside the village of Candor, for 
this special birding trip led by Nature Preserve Manager Jason Gorman and 
long-time volunteer and naturalist Betsy Darlington in search of this 
spectacular bird. Please dress for the weather and bring a flashlight or 
headlamp, as it will be dark when we return to our cars.  This trip will be 
rescheduled for the following day—Sunday, April 29—in the case of pouring rain, 
but not light rain. Please note: this trip involves some limited but steep 
climbs over rocky terrain.

Directions: From Ithaca, take Rt. 96B south towards Danby and drive 
approximately 18 miles to Candor. At the first gas station in Candor, turn 
right on Mill St., cross the creek, and turn left at the T intersection onto 
Rt. 96 – Main St. After passing Candor Central School on the left, turn left 
into the United Health Services parking lot at 54 Main St. Land Trust 
volunteers will determine, based on the number of attendees, if a carpool to 
the preserve is necessary. The parking area of the preserve cannot accommodate 
more than ten cars.

Please call (607) 275-9487 or email<> to
