While I was photographing the killdeer, a quick motion caught my eye. It was a bird I hadn’t seen before but is apparently fairly abundant. Most likely the reason I haven’t seen this bird before is because it blends in with its environment so well.
The Wilson’s snipe can be found on muddy shores or river banks which is where I found these birds. The most striking think about these birds is their long beak which they use to forage in the mud or shore for food. They are very skittish and would run away if they thought I spotted them.
