Weekend birding plans

Gretchen and I are going to Bald Eagle State Park tomorrow to look for woodcocks!

The park holds a birding festival (really tiny) each year, a woodcocks and grouse festival--and this year, it's April 18. So I figured that maybe the woodcocks are already there, especially because they were already calling at Middle Creek last month when I went there.

I hope to have some photos for you Monday!

I've heard Woodcocks, but haven't seen one yet. Imagine my envy when my husband came home from trail volunteering to tell me they had seen several of them.

Have a great time.

they HAVE to be there! Got a whole bunch of them 1 week ago here in Michigan! Good luck!

Either we were in a bad spot, or the windy and cold conditions keep them down, because we didn't see or hear ANY woodcocks!
