Thanks, warbler. They both look very close. I'm not a bird expert so can't really tell by googling the 2 birds. All input is appreciated. The range is correct for both a common snipe and woodcock.

Its an American Woodcock, related to the snipe. You can tell by the markings and slope of the forehead.

Thanks for looking, lj. Left a link for you on the other bird puzzle.

I think they're right. It looks like a snipe. Love the long bill! I compared it with a sandpiper, and although they are similar, snipe gets my vote. Thank you, snooker.

So......this is what you hunt when you go snipe hunting????

Think you may have it, Sandy. Googled common snipe and it looks like this one.

By the length of the bill and the stripes down the back, it looks like the Common Snipe according to my book: A Guide to Field Identification BIRDS of North America.
I bet david would know for sure.

My first thought, when I saw the beak, was some sort of sand piper. It's a great shot in that field of glorious green!

Thanks you two. Anyone know for sure what it is? Maybe some kind of sand piper?

This one has a long beak! Looks like it is full grown.
