Timberdoodles with the kids
This evening I took my family to Sailor Point at Peace Valley Park at dusk to see the American Woodcocks (Timberdoodles) come out for their evening display flights. When we got there, we heard a half dozen woodcocks making their "pzeeeent" calls off in the woods and in the brushy field near the boat launch parking lot. Then, a couple bird zipped close by overhead. As it was getting harder to see, the birds started flying high overhead making their squeaky conveyor belt noises in the dark. The kids were tired, and it was a little chilly out there, but still lots of fun.
