Subject: [MASSBIRD] Woodcock Walk, Medfield, Mon., Apr. 3
Yesterday after sunset we decided to try the fields along Medfield's
Hospital Road for American Woodcocks. We homed in on the nearest calling
males. Two birds flew right by us, one of them disappearing over the
horizon. Although apparently it was too cloudy and dark to discern any
woodcock sky dances, we could hear their wing twitters and vocal chirps. One
male called very close to us on the ground, allowing us to glimpse its
silhouette in the grass before it took off.
