My son and I were at a park walking next to some water. I went to peek in the woods to see if I could see any deer and as I turned around there is this bird shaking its wings at me.
It made me jump back a little because the way it was shaking (think about the dino that shakes its neck in Jurassic Park). It was on the ground and guessing it was sitting on a nest even though I saw no eggs..
It was about the size of a chicken and had a long slender sort of curved beak.

Any ideas?

Its not a grouse. That is what everyone on another forum was saying...
The beak was longer like a sandpiper maybe?

And this was a larger bird

if it wasn't a grouse could it have been a timberdoodle(woodcock)? it is a migratory bird we have here(not sure if they r there or not) and i have shot them hunting in grouse and migratory season thinking they were grouse. they have a long weird beak that looks like a hummingbirds beak and that is about the color but i can't tell from the pic.
