In reponse to the Forest 44 CA possible woodcock vs
I know the area well and bird it often and have birded
it for several years now.The field near the parking lot is really good for
woodcocks.The latest I have had them there is May,22nd.
said the large equestrian area adjacent to the Forest 44 parking lot
attracts lots of nighthawks this time of year.They can be seen and
heard feeding over the various horse rings. I had several in the
Forest 44 parking lot just a few weeks ago.
This time of year, at
that particular spot, I would have to say they were probably nighthawks that
were heard -but never say never.
