The American Woodcock lives in young forest and shrubby areas often near streams, rivers, and wetlands. Woodcock eat worms, which they catch by probing in the soil with their long bills. Woodcock is only one species of many that are dependent upon young forests that have been in decline in recent years. It is a high priority to enhance these declining habitats within the District with mechanized equipment working with private, state, federal and tribal partners.
