Wilson's Snipe

I got back to Wilkin's Field this afternoon for just over an hour. I was pleased to find almost 20 different species, especially two that I looked extra hard for. Gilbert Bouchard had reported through ebird that there was a Sora and American Bittern there Friday evening. I found them both (no picture of the Sora and blurry one of the American Bittern flying away) so thats two more to check off of my life list! (126 for the year, 139 for life in NB) There were 3 Wilson's Snipes and I did get a decent picture of one that I have posted below.
