Timberdoodle Doodling in Snow

This strange creature with an extremely long bill is an American Woodcock. I found him this morning after last nights fresh snow. He migrated from a warmer climate recently, so I'm sure he's not too happy with this snow. His bill is used to sift through soil for bugs and worms.

What a great catch! I have never seen one before! Extremely nice photo.

The owls and the woodcock are phantastic. I've never been remotely that close to either one...:)
