Take immediate left at Hellcat Interpretive
Trail sign. When you go
~5-10' past the men's bathroom on your
left, look left. You'll see a
tree limb snapped off (about 6"
diameter) about 5' off ground snagged
in another shrub. The end of the limb
will be facing you and is quite
bright compared to surrounding
vegetation (almost white). Look 6-8'
past the end of limb (South) on the
ground. Mother (assumed) and
fledgling were feeding @1245P. Will
have (not great iPhone) images on
eBird later.

Please be mindful of her and her
fuzzy-headed baby! She's very
skittish, even for a woodcock.

Good birding,
