The winter woodcock trapping season is complete with the last satellite transmitters (PTTs) deployed in February 2016. This winter the researchers deployed 28 transmitters in Louisiana and Texas.
It appears at least some of the transmitters deployed in the fall are sending locations including one that appears to have overwintered near Cape May, New Jersey.
As of February 3, the first major move was a Texas bird moving north into Oklahoma and as of today is located east of Springfield, Missouri. There had not been much movement by the birds until about February 16 and continuing since. As of March 1, most of these birds had migrated north to southern Missouri, southern Illinois, Kentucky, and Tennessee with the longest distance traveler moving to the eastern panhandle of West Virginia and then making an abrupt turn northwest and is currently within about 20 airline miles WSW of the RGS headquarters.
