Wilson’s Snipe


Johan Langewis
 

I birded Valle Vista Staging Area in Moraga today with Madeline Brane. We tallied 52 species including an amazing gathering of 31 Wilson’s Snipe. Upper San Leandro Reservoir is dropping significantly exposing extensive mud flats. The snipe can be found opposite the trail, beyond the horse barn, where the trail curves inland. Accompanying the snipe were two Greater Yellowlegs and four Killdeer. It was a nice day, but rain would be welcomed.
