Climbing High - Woodcock By David A. Maass

Climbing High - American Woodcock by David A. Maass

"Early autumn in the north country means woodcock. I chose a narrow vertical format for this one to best convey the quick assent of this little bird as he rises from the forest floor." - D. Maass

Woodcocks have stocky bodies, cryptic brown and blackish plumage and long slender bills. Their eyes are located on the sides of their heads, which gives them 360 vision. Unlike in most birds, the tip of the bill's upper mandible is flexible.

As their common name implies, the woodcocks are woodland birds. They feed at night or in the evenings, searching for invertebrates in soft ground with their long bills. This habit and their unobtrusive plumage makes it difficult to see them when they are resting in the day. Most have distinctive displays known as "roding", usually given at dawn or dusk.
