Wilson’s Snipe

Once again I have to apologize for not posting as regularly as I should. It’s been a rough couple of weeks-busy at work, truck and computer problems,etc. I’m off for a few days now,though, and the truck has brakes again and there is a new hard drive in the computer (luckily, I had just backed up the night before it died so nothing was lost.) I went out to Spring Canyon a few days ago and saw what I had initially reported as a Virginia Rail, but after looking at the photos found that it was a Wilson’s Snipe instead, so I had to go change my eBird report. Wilson’s Snipes aren’t uncommon around here in the winter but it is the first one I had seen, so I wasn’t too disappointed that it wasn’t a rail.
