What do you guys think about the whole woodcock season in manitoba?

It definitely had the long narrow beak of a woodcock. Up close it had black spots all over it's otherwise brown feathers (not "2-tone" like I would describe grouse colouring) and underneath it's wings it had colouring. You could only really see the colouring when it's wings were open a bit, and I believe it was mostly blue with some orange... could be wrong on the colours from looking at so many google images trying to figure out what it was!
Anyways, unless grouse sometimes have long narrow beaks I don't think it could possibly have been one. Not sure what else it could have been around Hadashville?
