Hello all,

My wife and I went down to Black Dog Preserve, in Dakota County, this 
evening to look for woodcocks.  We were not disappointed, with birds 
calling and displaying all around us.  We heard some 10-15 woodcocks and 
saw a similar number.  One called 20 feet from us and displayed directly 
overhead, while several others flushed from our feet, and one simply ran 
10 feet away, remaining in view.  The majority of these were between 1/2 
mile and 1 mile from the trailhead, right along the trail.  This site is 
accessed from the parking lot on Cliff Rd, about a mile east of I-35W.  
Woodcocks started calling around 8:10, and we were able to see several 
of them quite well while the light was still good.

Other birds in the area included Snipe, Yellow-rumped Warbler, 
Rough-winged Swallow, and Brown Thrasher.  As light fell, a number of 
Soras were calling from the marshes to the north.

Good birding,

Matt Dufort
