I can't keep track of what the Snipe that frequents our farm is called, Common or Wilson's. It's common here so that's what I call it. I posted a video on youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qcLJ8LYdNYw&feature=youtu.be I love the way this bird bobs when it eats.
When it is hiding from us, it holds perfectly still and blends into the background. I wish it would stick around this spring and find a mate and raise miniature bobbing birds but I read that they breed east of the Cascades, not here.
Here it is being a part of the scenery.
Close up, it turns into a bird.
It would be *so* cute to have miniature bobbing birds here. I wish a second Snipe would show up of the appropriate gender, whatever that is.
