Did I get your attention? Nope, I am not serving Tequila. Instead this is an introduction to an American Woodcock dancing to the tune of Tequila!
Tim Flanigan This is a hen that has been caught by a winter storm that is preventing her from probing for her earthworm diet. The “dance” is actually a form of seismographic testing in an attempt to encourage an earthworm to move so that her ultra-sensitive feet can detect it and she can probe for it. She normally eats nearly her body weight in worms daily. This bird is in trouble.
Oh dear, I hope the bird will find other ways to forage.
