Thanks Marie! Funny about the woodcock. Last night, as I lay in bed, I heard the wing-feathers whistling of a woodcock right outside the window. No “peanuts”, no sky display with chirps. Just a woodcock on the move. We had as many as 5 woodcocks in our fields this spring, and I often hear them

Our group went to Dodge Road, where the woodcocks started later than when I scouted, but with enough light to be easily seen. After a few skydances, those with muck boots and binoculars took a few steps into the muddy field where I was able to get my spotlight on the bird on the ground. The

There was just an alert on Facebook that Woodcocks are really suffering due to the snowstorm as they have migrated in only to find no ground and no earthworms available. I hope that your stream may have some open muddy areas along the edge. Linda Orkin Ithaca,NY On Fri, Mar 17, 2017 at 11:41

The Lindsay-Parsons Preserve has long been a good place for viewing Woodcock displays. Just park in the lot, walk down the trail into the ravine, cross the little bridge and continue up and out into the big fields. Head for the knoll with the Leopold bench: you can see a huge expanse of sky

I read your report with interest. I believe that Wolf Island is the site of some 85 major wind turbines, now in operation. I am wondering how their presence affects the woodcocks' sky dance. And I also wonder how the winter Short-eared Owl population is faring. Bob McGuire On Aug 18, 2011,

Sadly, those last big, original woods along Warren Rd. in the Northwoods area (near Ithaca airport) is up for sale, so more habitat will be lost for the Woodcock and other critters. Donna S. - Original Message - From: Scott Haber To: CAYUGABIRDS-L Sent: Wednesday, March 16,

On the hayfields I help manage, we have both young turkeys and ruffed grouse in the tall grass. It's good cover and also provides a lot more bugs than the stubble after cutting. We put off cutting until the end of June, but I personally would prefer the middle of July. Steve -Original
