The American Woodcock is one of the favorite species I work with as a Biologist in Kentucky.  I had the opportunity to photograph this female on her nest this spring.  As is always the case with woodcock, she was buried deep in the vegetation.  I circled her multiple time to find at least a small window to shoot in on her.  Two days after this photograph, she hatched her young and left the nest site.
