On Thursday (March 27), starting at 7:15 p.m., the Fyke Nature Association is sponsoring a free Woodcock Watch at the Green Way entrance to the Celery Farm.

Here's the plan: We'll show up and look out at the Green Way field in hopes of seeing American Woodcocks and they perform their crazy courtship displays and make their wacky noises.

Directions to Green Way are in the right-hand column of this blog.

Photo above is by the inimitable Kevin Watson. (Thanks, Kevin!)

A link to a column I wrote about woodcocks two years ago for The Record and Herald News is here.

2015 CF Calendar Photos Wanted!


Fyke Calendar quarterback Carol Flanagan writes:

Photos are needed for the 2015 Celery Farm calendar. The only requirement is that the photo was taken at the Celery Farm by a Fyke member.

The proceeds from the calendar sale fund the Stiles and Lillian Thomas Scholarship, awarded to a graduating senior at Northern Highlands  who is pursuing a college degree in the environmental sciences.
This $1,000 scholarship was initiated to honor Stiles and Lillian for their lifelong commitment to preservation and conservation.
Please send your photo, landscape orientation, saved as a high-resolution jpeg file, to [email protected] by Aug. 1!
So get out your camera!
