Subject: [GeneseeBirds-L] Hemlock Woodcocks
Hi All. Since others have started to report woodcocks (e.g. Chautauqua Co.
and I think Ithaca area) we went up Purcell Road to where there have been
at least 3 territories in past years. Sure enough, 3 were peenting from
the same places, amazing in late February. We arrived 19 minutes after
sunset and they were already calling. Two stopped calling after a couple
of minutes but one was still calling when we left 26 minutes after sunset.
