Continental US American Woodcock Migration Mapping Example

Welcome to the Ruffed Grouse Society’s National American Woodcock Migration Mapping System. RGS started providing real-time tracking of the annual fall and spring American woodcock migrations in 2006 -- for the first time in history. It has continued each year since. The mapping system relies on daily migration data provided by our members and online readers. Users enter the date, activity level and zip-code (see below) for the area they're reporting on, then select if the woodcock activity in that area is Light, Medium, Heavy, or at its Peak and you may also add a comment.

**The maps are a summary of the prior daily (24-hour) entries which reset each midnight, so we encourage our visitors to report each day they encounter woodcock. To view prior 24-hour or longer prior period historical maps, click the Historical Maps and Summaries link.

Thank you for your interest and postings.
