Wilson's snipe

Gallinago delicata

Wilson's snipe is a small, stocky shorebird. This species was considered to be a subspecies of the common snipe until 2003 when it was given its own species status, though not all authorities recognized this immediately. Wilson's snipe differs from the latter species in having a narrower white trailing edge to the wings, and eight pairs of tail feathers instead of the typical seven of the common snipe.
