We were able to see 6 American Woodcocks in Brooklyn's historic Greenwood Cemetery today. Most were in the area of the Battle Hill Monument. We caught sight ofone walking and feeding between gravestones and another later flew in a circle around us affording excellent views; the rest were birds we spooked who just took off away from us. Also lots and lots of Golden-crowned Kinglets, Chipping Sparrows, Dark-eyed Juncos and Hermit Thrushes. Yeah!
