My Column: All about Snipe -- and Snipers

IMG_5289My latest column is all about Wilson's Snipe, featuring an interview with ace birder/author Rick Wright (no relation) of Bloomfield.

Rick leads tours for Victor Emanuel Nature Tours --  including birds and art tours in Guatemala, France, Spain, Italy, Germany, Sweden, Poland, Russia, Denmark, and Austria next year.

I took this photo a year ago on Oct. 18 at Crestwood Lake, a great spot to spot snipe.

The column explains why snipe are such a cool bird, and how snipers got their name.
