Surprise in my garage last night

Had my garage doors open most of yesterday. When I went into the garage late last night to put out the garbage, something started thumping. I had no lights on, couldn’t see anything. Figured if it was aggressive, it would make more noise and if not, would probably stay hidden. It stayed quiet, hidden, and I let it go to deal with it this morning.

Went down to the garage this morning in the light, and found a bird on a shelf next to my garage window. Moved some things around so I could get to it, grabbed it, brought it outside, and let it go. Turns out, I think, it was an American Woodcock. Very long thin beak. Very good flyer too after it was let go.

They're migrating to the Gulf right now, they're interesting because they migrate at night. Sometime by themselves sometime in a flock
