American woodcock.


Anne spotted a woodcock walking across a yard at Rondeau Provincial Park, Ontario, Canada. April 30, 2018.
By the time I got turned around it had wandered into a grassy area.
This photo explains why it is hard to find woodcocks. He was about 4 feet away.

Scolopax minor
Young woodcocks leave the nest a few hours after hatching, but for their first week they depend on their mother for food. They start to probe in dirt at three or four days after hatching.
