I have never posted a video on this blog before. But the common snipe has some habits that deserve to be seen. Photographs will be coming this week, so be sure to come back. And for Sky Watch Friday I have a very, very special photo that I took today (not a snipe)! Anyhow, now that spring is here, all sorts of animals are appearing again. The snipe was here in the yard all day on Sunday and I took about a hundred photos of him! I hope you enjoy this three minute silent video (he made no sound at all). Every summer there are at least two snipes at opposite ends of the beaver bog. They talk to each other all day long. I am so glad they are back.
