The Whitehurst Diaries: Nesting Woodcock
Click on headline for diary entry and photo(s)
By Sharon Whitehurst
GRADYVILLE, KY (2011-04-11) - Son-in-law Matt Gould phoned me at 7pmCT and in his usual peremptory fashion ordered me to hasten next door with my camera.
He and our daughter Gina led me to the edge of the woods behind their property on the Old Gradyville Road
They stood pointing into the tall grass, grinning triumphantly while I tried to focus on anything remarkable.
Then I saw her--a woodcock, motionless except for the soft rise and fall of her breast feathers.
I used the macro setting on my camera hoping to catch the detail of her feathers, which resulted in some blurring.
I'll approach the nest in daylight for a better shot. -Sharon Whitehurst
