Hello friends, this photo was taken at an American Woodcock
banding activity, this Mommy American Woodcock and her brood
was found and then pointed by Bobcat Celtick my pointing dog,
it was a first experience for him at a woodcock banding outing.

In spring, when the American Woodcock it take-off its flight
heavy with dangling legs like on this photo, it means
that she has chicks with her. Then the chicks are found
in the forest ground and banded. Once the banders
leave the place, Mommy Woodcock she come back
where are the chicks.

I am doing this photo my 2016 "Mother's Day" image
and with wishing a « Happy Mother's Day ».

1/1000s f/5.6 ISO1600 85mm (35mm eq:127mm).

Hi Asbed,i seen all the long history of this mom on facebook and it's nice to see something on TN too for the other friends that are only there.Beautiful in flight capture,and a very original way to celebrate the Mother's day,i like it! Have a nice Sunday and thanks,Luciano

Bonjour Asbed,

Une très bonne capture de l'oiseau en vol. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails de la Bécasse d'Amérique en vol. Les branches cadrent bien l'oiseau. La bonne luminosité fait ressortir les couleurs. Bonne journée.


Hello Asbed,
Beautiful photograph of this mother woodcock to celebrate "Mother's Day". Nice natural color and atmosphere. Well captured.
Thanks and have a nice Sunday,

Ron posted the picture of a Woodcock on the ground, Asbed. You have shown it in flight.
The picture is quite sharp with nice details.
The bare branches in the BG give an impression of the bird's habitat.
