Outdoor Radio: The American Woodcock

Apr 20, 2017

The arrival of the American Woodcock is one of the exciting signs of spring in Vermont.

Biologist Kent McFarland joined a group of bird enthusiasts called "The Mad Birders" on a recent evening to find some. As they take their annual Woodcock walk in Moretown, we learn about this bird's amazing mating ritual and hear their unusual sound.
