Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Plump, camouflaged shorebird that blends into wet meadows and marshy areas. Similar in shape to American Woodcock but much darker, with brown markings on underparts and striped face. Exceptionally long bill is used for probing into mud. On breeding grounds, watch and listen for aerial flight display, which includes a rapid series of hoot-like noises produced by the outer tail feathers.
