This bird is a very shy, stocky long-billed bird. They live in thickets, wooded swamps and wet forested areas. Sometimes this bird is a tough one to find since they are extremely shy. I was lucky to find this one, just by chance I saw a squirrel jump a bit on the side of a swamp/woods trail, so I went over to the area to see what caused it to jump and I found this Woodcock! Needless to say, I didn’t breath as I tried to get my camera in position to get this photo!
