Have you ever heard the sound a snipe makes when it's flying over it's territory and the wind whistles in its wings. There's a woo woo woo woo sound repeated over and over. They fly quite fast when scouting or trying to attract a mate. They are defending or establishing territories. When landed they start calling for a mate. When a mate is found the courtship begins.
This bird had been flying. I had watched it several times before. It landed in the same area all the time. Fortunately when it landed this time I was in position to grab a shot or two. They belend in very well with the dead grasses and leaves on the ground.
Thank you for visiting my site. I consider myself to be lucky living where I do. Everyday I wake up to a wealth of interesting visual scenarios. Most of my pictures are Wildlife and Nature taken from around the area. The area specifically being Fort Frances Ontario on beautiful Rainy Lake. Feel free to comment on what you see.
