It would be most interesting to learn if this is true in Missouri.  The site mentioned in the first post is well south and west of Pennsylvania.  There is a national wildlife refuge in Maine with the primary purpose of woodcock breeding habitat.  I'd bet they display later in Maine than in Missouri.

So...where are the Missouri biologists with pertinent information?

 According to a publication I have from the Pennslyvania Conservation Department, Woodcocks commonly display into June.  The males take no part in raising the young and will continue to display in the hopes that a female that has lost her clutch will attempt to remate.  The odds are low perhaps, but they probably have nothing better to do.

I was also wondering if Woodcocks had two seasons of "peenting."  Is it possible they were Nighthawks instead of Woodcocks?
