Distribution: The American Woodcock is an upland gamebird. It is similar in appearance to the Common Snipe, having a stuby body including a long bill, which it uses to probe the earth for insects and worms. It can be seen from Newfoundland and Labrador through the southern regions of Quebec as well as through the southern region of Ontario to western Manitoba. It is also seen all around the Great Lakes, through the central states to almost the southeastern borders of the US and Mexico and eastward to the Atlantic coast including the northern half of Florida as well as north through New Brunswick to Nova Scotia.
