I learned so much from Donna, that I'm going to get involved. She spends the early spring in Minnesota working her Munsterlander, helping the rest of us who hunt the Timberdoddle, one of our favorite gamebirds. 

A Senecan Indian myth says God made the woodcock from the leftover parts of other birds. Large eyes are located along the sides of the bird's head, allowing it to see in all directions, including directly behind. A long, thin bill that averages nearly three inches in length permits woodcock to probe in soft earth for worms, slugs and other invertebrates. Nostrils lie high against the skull so the woodcock can feed and breathe at the same time. Its ears are located beneath the eyes. Woodcock stand about eight inches tall, appear to bob when they walk, and weigh about a half-pound each. 

But you'll learn more than this if you listen to this episode
