The Common Snipe.
You know spring is in the air when you here the eary lonsome corting call of a male common snipe.What i find amazing is that it is made from the bird going into a dive and the air passing through its tail feathers makes the strange sound. I just got home from a walk around the block, which is right next to a wetland and i herd the call. The picture below is from last year. I will hopefully get a recent image of the snipe....and who knows it could be a jack snipe haha STAY TUNNED
