First thing I noticed when I put the bedroom window shade up this morning around 7am—a Wilson’s Snipe standing on a small pile of compost in our back yard. It blended in perfectly but did a bit of classic snipe-bobbing and then slowly snipe-bobbed a few feet to stay for over an hour near 2 of our blueberry bushes.
It has done only a few moments of poking/probing at the slightly damp soil and mostly just standing or sitting in one place. I am sending this post and it is still standing quietly just 4 feet from the first place I noticed it.

I know they are not unusual in Edmonds with our marsh, etc, but I never expected to see a Snipe in my back yard!
