Wilson's Snipe, December 26, 2019

Wild Bird Wednesday, Thankful Thursday, and Little Things Thursday

Tupelo, Mississippi, USA, December 19, 2019
I am thankful for migratory birds! Because of migration, I get to see birds that spend most of their time in other parts of the continent. Wilson's Snipes, Gallinago delicata, breed in Canada and Alaska, then come south for the Winter months. But in some parts of the Rocky Mountains they are year-round residents.

Look for them at the edges of shallow water, probing the mud for crustaceans, snails and worms. They also eat insects, small frogs, and fish.

Have a blessed day!
