Friday's Foto

This is the Wilson's Snipe that was found in Prospect Park's Vale of Cashmere. Until relatively recently, the species was considered a subspecies of the European Common Snipe. They have been split into two distinct species. I've searched for any articles that discuss the differences between these two birds. Though still a little confusing, I found a decent comparison here.
