We estimated survival rates of wintering American woodcock. We found no age- or sex-specific differences in period survival rates. The survival rate for the period 25 December 1994 - 7 February 1995 for all age and sex classes combined (0.72) was not different from a similarly derived estimate for woodcock wintering along the Atlantic Coast. Survival rates of wintering woodcock are relatively low compared to other seasons.
