Hi everyone,
I'm wondering if anyone has used Woodcock in their tying?
Thank you.

I have, but not for years. I have so many partridge feathers, I could tie for a hundred years and not run out. Most game birds (grouse, woodcock, pheasant, quail etc.) have usable feathers.

But now that you brought the topic up, I'll have to dig through my feather collection, find a woodcock, and tie something.
I just found a bag of woodcock feathers and complete wings. The wings have the best mottled feathers, especially close to the shoulder.
