Wildbird Wednesday

This bird was bathing in rainwater runoff in a roadside ditch.  The photo is from 2008 in Grand Teton National Park.  The best I can figure this is a common snipe.  Sorry for the blurry image as it was taken from our Jeep stopped briefly at a stop sign.  The bird was more interested in bathing than posing, too.

    • I was really pleased at the time. Until I started reading the birding blogs like yours I was clueless as to how to identify birds. Paying close attention to all the details makes all the difference. Thanks for sharing your knowledge!

    • Thanks, Pete, for the comment and the visit. I grew up in a region where snipe hunting was used as a trick as there were no snipes of any sort. So guess I finally found the snipe.
