timberdoodleWoodcock Video (mp4)
At dusk last Saturday, 23 February 2013, Deane and Becky and I visited a parking lot northeast of Lake Stanley Draper to watch woodcock displays. There were at least three males displaying while we watched. This video shows one male briefly fly by me, after which his aerial twittering is audible. After a few minutes he lands at his spot and calls: “peent……………peent…………..peent”. If the video doesn’t load well in your browser, try right-clicking and save the file to your hard drive. Then open it in your favorite media player.
