someone on FB just gave me a great answer, and I think it's right so never mind, lol.
I hadn't taken into account the sound of the bird hitting the heavy cover as they go down. To a dog who is sitting, tuned in to the environment, that's probably what gives them the cue as to which direction the bird went.
And then of course, they rely on their nose once they get near.
