Does weather effect the Woodcock's sky dance? Do they stay down when it's windy like today? Or do hormones dictate their behavior and weather has no effect. Sent from my iPad -- Cayugabirds-L List Info: http://www.NortheastBirding.com/CayugabirdsWELCOME

I'm not sure what they'd do in a really ferocious windstorm, but normal windy conditions shouldn't stop them. After all, the display is a show of fitness. But wind might well make it harder for you to hear and observe them. -Geo On Apr 13, 2015, at 6:10 PM, Carol Keeler carolk...@adelphia.net
