This morning I flushed a "covey "of Woodcock near the river at the wetland area. That's what it seemed like anyway. I thought they were Bobwhite Quail at first they way they exploded up in front of me. Then I saw the long bills and colors of Woodcock. There were 5 or 6 birds that flew up and off in different directions. They didn't go to far and I flushed 2 or 3 singles again. Think maybe it was a family group?  
    Other birds seen besides the usual were a Magnolia Warbler, and a Least Flycatcher. Indigo Buntings have arrived in number now. The big Locust tree by the corner of dirt road had a pair of both Orioles, a Yellow Warbler, a Tennessee Warbler, Bell's Vireo and Goldfinches in it. Still no Blue Grosbeak there. Hope they do return.
