A shorebird that lives in forests, the American Woodcock is most frequently encountered at dusk when the male's chirping, peenting aerial displays attract attention. Otherwise the superbly camouflaged bird is difficult to discover on the forest floor where it probes for earthworms.

Cool Fact:
The male American Woodcock gives no parental care, but continues to display long after most females have laid eggs. Some males display at several, widely separated singing grounds and will mate with several females. A female may visit four or more singing grounds before nesting, and she may keep visiting even when she is caring for her young.
Woodcock birds are easy to spot, they're the ones with short legs and a long pecker.

Yeah, whatever, it's my last name. So what? It's not like true or anything. And no! I don't get splinters or do I know what type of wood is it. Jeeze! Give me a break. Everyone has made fun of it since grade 5. Kids can be so cruel. But I have to admit thanks to my last name I am a little more popular, thanks!
