It is a ridiculous looking animal. A bill as long as its body with huge, dopey saucer-like eyes set far back on its head. It stutters when it walks, like there is a short-circuit somewhere. Even its sound is bizarre - a nasal peent that sounds not quite frog but not quite bird and you're left uncertain as the sun sets what is sitting in your backyard. For those who haven't figured it out yet, it is an American Woodcock. And who would have thought such a homely little bird could cause such a ruckus?
