Mystery bird- American Woodcock

My faithful readers will recall, last year, April 7, 2011, I posted a dusk video of the song of a mystery bird. I couldn't see it in the dark. My late buddy, Oliver the cat, was chasing it on the lawn. Someone on YouTube suggested it is an American Woodcock. It could well be! This link has the same sounds!

I anticipate more April visitors! Today it being -10 C. and brisk.

Loved seeing the photo...I didn't see the original post (being a late arrival to blogging!)...but I will have to listen now when I get a chance. Almost sounds like he could be a cousin to the Roadrunner...beep...beep...
