Join avid birder, Nic Salick, for an evening hike where we'll look for Nightjars in the prime of their mating season. These are nocturnal, owl-like birds that don't build nests and have some funky behaviors. $10 per person. Ages 12+. You'll learn to identify two species of Nightjars, the Common Nighthawk and the Eastern Whip-poor-will, discuss their unique habits, and with some luck, be serenaded by their song after sunset. While we will try not to use flashlights or headlamps during the program, feel free to have one along to help you get back to the lodge when we conclude. Better yet, use a red light! Please note: Part of this program will take place outdoors and involves pedestrian travel on uneven, dirt trails. Please plan accordingly and leave your pets at home.
