The American Woodcock (Scolopax minor) is a short, plump shorebird species from North America. It is popularly known as “timberdoodle”. These birds forage by probing in soft soil. They mainly eat earthworms (50% of diet) and arthropods. They have an odd bobbing gait, while ambling about foraging for food. They have a prehensile moveable bill-tip, that works like tweezers. They are most active at dawn and dusk.
Oh, and they like to “Move it, move it…”
