An American Woodcock for Camera Critters



This profile view is the best picture of this American Woodcock for it shows its long bill.


The richly patterned design of this bird above shows its beauty as I saw it walking across a road in a wooded section earlier this week. I have come across quite a number of birds or animals recently crossing roads in wooded section and I think it is the time of year when I should dedicate some time in such environments to see what else I can find. I will dedicate a full day next week to following such pursuits. I look forward to it.

Good shot. I did see this bird once many years ago. He just sat there like that but I didn't have my camera. I thought it was shore bird that had lost its way but it turned out he was probably eating worms in the cove.

You captured so much detail in the feathers. Well done! Good luck with your pursuit and I look forward to seeing what you find.
