American Woodcock

One of my most treasured traditions for decades was going out listening for woodcocks at my mother-in-law’s place in Port Wing Wisconsin every spring. The air would be filled with frog music and woodcocks peenting. The subtle little hiccup that precedes most peents is inaudible unless you’re very close.
