|Lee county, Mississippi, USA, January 10, 2017|
I think it must be a migratory bird just passing through north Mississippi. I live about 300 miles north of the Gulf of Mexico, so I am not familiar with shorebirds.
I am hoping someone can identify this bird for me.
UPDATE: Thank you birding friends - they are Wilson's Snipes!
Wilson's Snipes are migratory birds, breeding in Canada and the northern parts of the US. They are seen here in the southeastern states only in the Winter.
Have a wonderful week-end!
