Wilson's Snipe - Stanley Park Dec. 8 2013

Posted by Liron on Wednesday, December 18, 2013
I haven't had much time lately to write up my usual long posts, so I'm just going to highlight one species that I have seen recently and also gotten good photos of.

On December 8th, I had killer looks of a bird that you could say is a little bit of a nemesis for me: the Wilson's Snipe! Before this view, I had only seen one flying, and it was very far away. That was in California, so not only was this a much better view but it was also a Canadian lifer. Wow! I still can't get over the experience of this bird feeding out in the open, 5 metres away, for half an hour! This guy was feeding in the northeast corner of Lost Lagoon in Stanley Park, not a place I would expect to see this bird!
