Last night (Monday) not long after sunset 3 of us inmates heard and saw the Woodcock doing its display flight and peenting! I think we saw it both ascending and descending.
It seems to have quit right after 8 PM both nights I was listening/observing. It was in the same spot on Mt. Kendal as it was Friday and Saturday. Yesterday here, I saw a single Mockingbird again. I hope the mate shows up (pair here last fall)! I have seen a Song Sparrow and heard a Carolina Wren, along with Cardinals and other usual bird residents. Lots more bird singing in the morning - the start of the Dawn Chorus!
