IUCN Conservation Status: Least Concern
Christopher L. Wood
A common shorebird of wet, grassy spots, the Wilson's Snipe has an extremely long bill that it uses to probe in the mud for small invertebrates. Its camouflage is so good that it often is not seen before it flushes from the grass.
Display call a harsh "tuk-a-tuk-a-tuk&" Winnowing a hollow "hu-hu-hu" sound. Makes rasping "scaipe" when flushed.
