When do Woodcock nest ?

I was doing some improvement cutting on my farm over the weekend, and had a woodcock doing the "dropped wing hobble" on a trail in front of my quad. I'm thinking it had eggs on the ground ? Now I don't know doodly (no pun intended) squat about woodcock or their mating habits, so don't lambaste me too bad.

Ditto Spring....may have been an overly tired migrant.
Folks can act a little goofy on a long road trip.

GBE was correct....decades ago.

Rory has a good owner now....lucky lad.
