Wilson's snipe
Wilson's snipe

Saw these two at Arnold Arboretum today. My husband had spotted one there yesterday, but didn't have the right lens for his camera with him, so we went out again today armed with binoculars and the big zoom lens. And hit the jackpot. 

 

We went back to the place he had seen the snipe yesterday, waited very patiently (up to our knees in snow, I might add) and they eventually appeared. 

 

So that's another one for the life list. Yay!
