you very much could not have any resident birds where you were hearing them but its possible more will show up. I think the rule of thumb is if you hear them after april 15th they are more than likely resident birds. Ill hear them talking depending on the year up till mid May and i even heard one on Memorial day last year so the Males will continue to look for some lovekg300 said:I was hearing woodcock regularly through this past Saturday but I haven't heard one since. I am in the south central portion of the state. So who is still hearing woodcock and what portion of the state?
