On Thursday evening, Tilden and I spent a few minutes (7:45-7:55 PM) by the far parking lot in Sapsucker Woods. We heard two AMERICAN WOODCOCKS calling, one very close to us between the gravel road and the near power poles, and one out near Highway 13. After a few minutes of increasingly frequent calls, we saw the closer woodcock fly out northbound over our heads in a low line. The other one took off a few minutes later. Neither seemed to stay in the field by the gravel road to display; maybe they went to the airport.
