American Woodcock!

Thursday, Mark Chao found an American Woodcock in Sapsucker Woods, and managed to keep it enough in view to ensure that a bunch of us got to see it. It was the coolest thing to watch it feeding--it bobbed up and down like a miniature ballerina hippopotamus practicing pliet and relevae over and over.
