In the Book of Job we are instructed to, "Ask...the birds...and they will tell you." In the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus said, "Look at the birds." So let's ask the birds, and look at the birds, and see what they have to say. May God bless you in your quest! Bill Bossman

Wilson's Snipe hiding in the reeds
Because of the old prank of taking someone on a snipe hunt, many people do not believe a snipe is a real bird. Well, this afternoon I found a Wilson's Snipe that was indeed, very real. As you can see in the photo above, you do sometimes have to hunt in order to find a snipe because they are very good at hiding in vegetation. Wilson's Snipes are common shorebirds throughout most of North America. Next time you are out in a marsh, go on a snipe hunt and see if you can find some of these interesting creatures.
