Natural History Field Trip

Mr. David McMyne led the junior class on a natural history field trip, to take part in a presentation on the ‘Woodcock Sky Dance’ on March 24th. The presentation was led by the founder of the Pocono Avian Research Center, in collaboration with Lackawanna College Environmental Educational Center.

After a brief presentation on the life history of the Woodcock, including a taxidermic specimen, the students were treated to an observational opportunity to witness firsthand the sounds and flights of the nuptial sky dance.

The seminar concluded with a powerpoint presentation, followed by a question and answer session. The junior class had prepared for the presentation by studying the habits of this elusive bird, and asked many questions, some of which even stumped our expert!
