Euroasian Woodcock - Scolopax rusticola
The Eurasian Woodcock is a coastal bird of medium size, which lives in the area of temperate and subarctic Eurasia. This migratory bird in Macedonian migrates from 2-3 weeks to a month, usually from mid-October to mid-November. It can be observed and hunted on the hunting grounds in Macedonia.
Large forests are its habitat, and this bird is active at dawn and dusk, but rarely during the day. Due to its size, speed, and manner of flying, the Eurasian Woodcock has always been a challenge for hunters. This "queen of the hunt" can be caught in flight in the morning, in that magical time when Macedonia’s wonderful forests are waking up.
