I'm Amazed

I was going to title this post Maybe I'm Amazed. You may remember the title from the Paul McCartney song, but the maybe doesn't fit because I am amazed, or was amazed when I saw the Woodcock's mating dance video a few weeks ago.
Apparently, the Woodcock does its mating dance and an aerial display every dawn and dusk for two months. I'll have to pull on my deerstalker cap and search the woods to see if I can find one. Move over Sherlock.

2000-5000 more feathers and I can call it finished. :)
Work in progress...

Do turn up the sound.  Take it away Mr. Woodcock...

Enjoy...
