    I was mushroom hunting last Saturday and ran across a mama woodcock and little one.

    Amazing how well they blend in. Wish hen turkeys did the same.

    If I was doing anything besides looking down for mushrooms, I would have never seen them. Probably a once in a lifetime deal.

    IMG_1586740100.343945.jpg Was crossing the pasture a couple of weeks ago and flushed a hen off this nest. Like you said probably a once in a lifetime deal.

    Very cool. I didn't know they nested here. Learn something new every day. I thought they just came down in the fall and went back up to New England after the winter. I wonder if the young ones migrate back with the parents. I've never seen a baby or sub adult. Weird and interesting birds. Thanks for sharing.

    I notice more around my place during a wet year, and understandably knowing their diet. That being said, maybe a good year for them in store. They do taste good.

    I see woodcock every year from prob November through late spring around creeks/river bottoms.
