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.
Thanks for stopping by for a visit . Make sure to go join all the real birding folks at Wild Bird Wednesday.
Thanks to host Stewart M.
