Subject: [cayugabirds-l] Snipe or Woodcock @ Bear Swamp (OOB)
Around midday today while XC skiing at Bear Swamp, which had a good 6+ inches of snow cover, I flushed from a small snow-free patch of wet grassy muck a snipe or woodcock, which flew off not too far and interestingly looked to have landed on a tree branch at about eye level. Alas without binoculars it was too far to make out. As it flew off I noted a reddish tail, which would imply Wilson's Snipe, though I suppose I could've been seeing some of the reddish underparts of a woodcock.
