Woodcock

My camera virtually useless for birds. The bird was also sighted by a very experienced bird watcher so I am confident in the identification.

Well, the pale colour had me wondering for a bit, but perhaps the bird banked as it flew off showing you its underside. Against snow they usually look very dark to me. Did you see the long bill?

No, too far away. Am basing my definite id on my assisociate's expertise! The bird did curve away.
