Sasha Munters and I went to Huntley Meadows this evening to check out the woodcock display and we were not disappointed. The Woodcock Meadow has been burned and has expanded open space for the woodcocks to display while making it easier for us to observe. We estimate at least 5 displaying birds. We had wonderful views displaying both on the ground and in the air and one female observing the display from the periphery of the field. I assume female because the individual was not a display participant, but just sat there while the display was going on. Sasha documented the first peent at 7:37 this evening and activity was still going on when we departed at 8:00.
