Mona, agree with the early morning, but have also had them early evening, when out looking for woodcock flights

Hi Mona - I remember having them doing their flights at Black Creek Marsh in the early to mid-morning.

I have several areas in my BBA blocks that look like good habitat for snipe.  Does anyone have any idea what time of day they start displaying?  I would assume after sunset like woodcock, but…?  I have seen them feeding during the day but have never seen courtship displays.
