First, the 21 (actually 22) woodcocks in the lady's Southern Shores yard from my previous post was actually in Point Harbor, Currituck County. I did not go up there today; the roads are still pretty bad on the northern banks. I did go to Bodie Island and drove the woods road. I found 9 woodcocks plus picked up one deceased. At the Oregon Inlet Fishing Center, there was one more AMWO, plus a pipit. Along the Bodie woods road were also several Fox Sparrows, feeding right on the shoulder.
Speaking of deceased, Joan and I seem to have lost all of our hummers. Joan had three ruby-throats on Jan 1st, and hasn't seen one in two days. I also had three a couple of days ago and have not seen any today at all. One of mine was a banded adult male.
