Little Snipe!

This morning while I was doing my chores, I happened upon this little one, near the duck pond. 

Common Snipe is it’s name, it hangs out in freshwater marshes and ponds. It seemed to be fairly brave, staying near the pond while I was working.

Nice pictures, Ebet. I like how the fence makes like a picture frame around the snipe in the last photo. :-)

I think their beaks are funny looking..we have a bird here called the American Woodcock that has the same kind of beak. They must use it to spear food:)

good catch with this picture - not a bird common to Texas because for us "taking someone on a snipe hunt" means getting them lost in the woods looking for a nonexistent bird!
