This is a Wilson's Snipe. On a normal outing, these birds are so well camouflaged they're not seen, hence they are 'scarce'...but if you look closely in the reed grasses, perhaps you can be lucky enough to spot one moving slightly. This one was busy preening, and the morning was quiet with no other birders around making noise, talking and commenting here and there. It was just the morning sounds, the breeze, the blackbird singing, so I took out my cellphone and clicked 'record'...
