Abstract

We describe methods for the study of the American woodcock (Scolopax minor) at the Moosehorn National Wildlife Refuge. Described are techniques for the capture of particular age-sex cohorts during different times of the year, the aging and sexing, the evaluation of habitat components, and the estimation of population size. We describe successful and tried but rejected techniques with radio-telemetry for the study of survival and habitat use.
