Wilson's Snipe


Wilson's Snipe, Wakodahatchee Wetlands, Delray Beach, Florida, United States

Location: Wakodahatchee Wetlands - Delray Beach, Florida

Comments: This species is often quite wary and well hidden in vegetation. I was taking photographs of other birds when I suddenly spotted the camouflaged snipe that was practically at my feet. I was able to take a few photographs before it melted away into some aquatic vegetation.
