I wonder what the incidence of short billed woodcock is in the overall population, out of the past 170 birds caught I have had three with bills between 45 and 50 mm. The normal length is between 70 and 80 mm tip to feather. These birds were all of good weight and so clearly it's not as much of a disadvantage as one might think.
