We went the other day, kids found a field full of them. We ended up with 20 out of 4 of us. I found out they are a lot harder to hit than a dove the way they dart around.

Looks like a great hunt! When I lived in S Florida, snipe were the only thing I could hunt like upland birds. Their erratic flight makes for some great wing shooting!

Ok, so is it a woodcock? I thought we'd really accomplished something, considering where we caught it.
it is a woodcock, but they're really cool birds and i'm still curious how you caught it. Was it strutting in the road or did it fly into a window and get dissoriented?

You remember that week of bad weather we had back in February? That's when we found him We were walking to our job site on 1at avenue south in Nashville, and their he was on a sidewalk, beside a building. He let us pick it up and handle him. We moved him over to the side of the alley way. That afternoon he was gone. The next morning he was back(or one like him), close to where we originally found him. Eventually we quit seeing him.
