American Woodcocks Have Arrived!

American Woodcocks have arrived and are displaying at dusk! Go out to large field areas at dusk and listen for their tell-tale "peent" call. Then they launch into the air in a display and at the height give high-pitched chirping and twittering sounds. The males display in open areas to attract a female. Then they mate and she nests in the woods and raises the brood on her own.
