I was hunting for mushrooms north of town when a Woodcock flew up right in front of me. I had to look around for a few minutes before I spotted a single young one on the ground. It was already mostly feathered, but quite a bit darker than an adult.
 I heard a Turkey Gobbler gobble deeper in the woods, and later a Barred Owl call. I did find my FOY Morel - and then 50 more!  Good Stuff!
