Woodcocks Are Pets Now?

Woodcocks are one of our favorite game birds… unless they’re on the kitchen table happily eating a bowl of worms.

Is he a pet, or just a wayward timberdoodle with an appetite? We may never know, but one thing is for sure, those worms are disappearing fast!

Whether you’re a hunter or simply a nature lover, you’ll enjoy a closer look at how the woodcock has lunch.

Get ready to laugh out loud: 

I’m no linguist, but the language seems to be Italian. Woodcock hunting in Italy is a very real thing, but this one is apparently a member of the family.

Whatever the case this is why you look for them in cover like young forests and shrubby fields where they can be found probing for their favorite food: the earthworm.
