When you Take a Nap and the Water is Freezing Around You…Now I “believe” this is a “Snipe”. An actual Snipe mind you. I may have the ID wrong as I’m NOT a birder, I’m a photographer who like photographing birds lolol.
So… napping he is, it’s right at 32 degrees, it’s snowing, the water is slowly setting like concrete around him. He was there about 5 minutes for his version of a cat nap (might be an inappropriate term for a bird napping). He got out lol.
So if you like to go out “Snipe Hunting”, here you go. It’s probably some curlew or some other related bird though lol.
