At dusk today I heard a woodcock displaying! I only caught one brief
glimpse of him silhouetted against the sky but as I tried to see him again I
at least got to listen to him for close to 15 mins. There were some low
trees in the way and he was up a hill so it took me a few minutes to realize
where he was. When I got back to my car I played the woodcock track on
BirdJam and it sounded exactly the same! This was so exciting for me
because this was lifer and what a great way to get a lifer! I've read about
their display and listened to them on the bird CDs before but never had a
chance to observe it.
Do they tend to display in the same place? If I go back tomorrow will I
have a good chance of hearing and maybe seeing him again? He was located on
private property off of Rt 156.
