Prime Time for Woodcocks!


Ray Duffy reports that he saw American Woodcocks displaying last night in Laurel Hill County Park in Secaucus around 6:15, and because of the full moon, he got some good looks as they did their courtship display.

The woodcocks should be appearing nightly for most of the month.

Tonight's full moon is called the Worm Moon, and since worms are the woodcocks' favorite meal, it could be prime time.

Thanks, Ray!

(We'd would love to post anybody's pix from the Meadowlands of these amazing birds).
