For the past 25 years (ever since KBBAT days) the south end of the Geary State Fishing Lake has been a reliable place to find American Woodcocks in March. For various reasons (weather and schedules) we hadn't had a chance to get down there until tonight. We weren't there for very long when one started "peenting" and not much later he took off and flew right over our heads. They are so odd in flight. We were also amused by three Great Horned Owls calling back and forth with all three having very distinct vocalizations. Amazingly, there was not an excessive amount of traffic on US 77 tonight and it was very calm and quiet at the lake.
