Thank you for sharing, Gloria.

The funny/amazing thing is, that I *may* have heard that same call tonight! I was out working in the yard, and after the sun went down, I kept walking the paths, unwilling to go inside. Just before it got too dark and I decided to go inside, I heard an odd sound...it could very well have been a woodcock. I even thought about trying to record it on video next time...and post it here to see if anyone could identify it for me.

I'd love to find out that, that is what I heard...and that they are in the area!

My only experience with the woodcock is from a painting in a book I used to use as inspiration for drawing when I was about fourteen.
