American Woodcock

I was looking out my bedroom window this afternoon when I noticed one of the "dead leaves" on the ground bobbing up and down. It was a woodcock doing his version of the “funky chicken.” Woodcocks are rarely seen because they are very shy and pretty much camouflaged by their surroundings. Seeing him really made my day!

What a darling little bird. He would have made my day too - how lucky you are to have seen him from your bedroom window.

Thanks for your comment, Alice. There are two of them out there, now - so we're hoping there will be little ones...
