Wilson's Snipe

This is probably one of the worst images that I have posted, but I was excited to have seen these birds. You may have to look closely to see them. I saw them at the same pond as the Greater Yellowlegs that I posted on Monday, but were off in the distance and somewhat hidden in the grass. I wasn't sure what they were, but when I left the pond some birds where looking at some of the same birds through a spotting scope on the other side of the pond. They assured me that they were Wilson's Snipe. Once I downloaded the images to my computer and got a better look at them, they do match the characteristics of Wilson's Snipe in my field guides.
