    Wacky Woodcocks

    Looks like a shorebird, but where's the ocean? These bizarre birds are woodcocks! They look like shorebirds, but are native to the woods at Broadmoor. Every spring, woodcocks court, filling the last hours of daylight with spectacular aerial displays. Watch and listen as they rocket up 300 feet, then call loudly as they zigzag during their dive back towards earth. Come join us as we attempt to view this amazing rite of spring....
