Lipscomb Alumni Flo Oakes hosts an American Bird Walk at Shelby Bottoms
February 20, 2016 - American Woodcock Bird Walk 4:30pm at Shelby Bottoms Nature Center (meet at parking lot) Join Nashville A Rocha and guide, Flo Oakes, as we try to catch a glimpse of the American Woodcock’s unusual breeding display. This eastern shorebird puts on a marvelous “dance” during breeding season as it spirals up toward the sky and creates sound effects with its wings. We will meet at the Shelby Bottoms Nature Center parking lot on Saturday, February 20th at 4:30pm and walk together to the observation deck. The woodcock typically begins its ritual at sunset, so we plan to be at the park until 6pm or so. Dress warmly, as temperatures could be quite cold in February. Hot cocoa provided! Please RSVP to Flo at email@example.com.
