American Woodcock at her nests.

« Nesting

Males display at night in spring and summer to
attract females. Often several males are close together
in meadow, brushy field. Male gives nasal beeping call
on ground, then performs high, twisting flight display.

In this "sky dance," musical twittering sounds made by
certain modified wing feathers, chirping calls made vocally.
Female visits area, mates with one of the males. Male takes
no part in caring for eggs or young. Nest site is on ground,
usually in open woods or overgrown field, in area with many
dead leaves. Nest (made by female) is a scrape lined with
dead leaves, other debris. »

Hi Asbed

H Asbed,i can see very clearly the black eye on the ground,but i don't know me too why there is a double signature into the pic,just an error or an indication to who is looking the eye? Ehehe....have a nice evening and thanks,Luciano

Hello Asbed,
You have great interest on this Woodcock species. Yes can see its eye and know why you used your signature so close to the bird. We need to go through NOTE. In your previous post you described it. It's your personal choice and here I have nothing to say. I like camouflage here. Still I didn't find its body well.
Thanks for showing us this species in its camouflage natural habitat.

Bonjour Asbed,
Merci pour le repère permettant d'apprécier plus facilement le sujet...
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.
