A selectively cut forest area and a clearcut area in Maine were studied between 1975 and 1977 to determine their utilization by American woodcock (Philohela minor) during the spring and summer. Emphasis was placed on evaluating use of area as singing grounds, nocturnal habitat, and diurnal habitat. In addition, the characteristics of the vegetation to which woodcock responded were estimated, and earthworms were sampled in different forest habitat types.
