Wilson's Snipe

Gallinago gallinago
This little guy, one of my favorites because they signal the real beginning of spring, was sitting on top of a phone pole, which is very unusual. I call them snipes. My husband calls them woodcocks and other people call them some other names. Click on this common snipe tag and you will find a video I made of one of these snipes while it hunting for bugs in the yard. They also go by the scientific name of Capella gallinago.
