With the weather being so nice when I got home, we decided to go out on our deck to enjoy the sounds of nature at dusk. At one point, we heard a Barred Owl, but what came after was far more intriguing.
We kept hearing an unfamiliar ‘PEENT’ sound from the woods, followed by a high pitched chatter. I quickly went to my guide, listened to some audio, and concluded it was an American Woodcock (click here to see more on AllAboutBirds.com)!
Looks like I’ll be spending even more time outside at dusk the next couple of days in hopes to photograph one!
