Each coconut stump in the lake is owned by one of them.
Wilson's Snipe (Gallinago delicata) forages for worms and insect larva in the mud (frame 1) and occasionally poses (frame 2) to check out all the photographers, no doubt wondering what all the fuss is about. The fuss is because this shore bird, in the same family as sandpipers, rarely makes an appearance from dense cover at edges of marshes and bogs, its preferred habitat. Like a sewing machine, it repeatedly and rapidly thrust its long, tactile-sensitive bill deep into the soft mud, occasionally coming up with a small morsel to ingest. The snipe's feather colors and pattern provide excellent camouflage, and it is usually quite shy. As a personal aside, I sometimes think most of my life has been one snipe hunt after another, a figurative idiomatic expression for impossible tasks. I frankly do not know if this is a psychological flaw, adversely affecting self-esteem, or a psychological asset, motivating the acceptance of challenges to advance solutions for difficult problems. Maybe both. Regardless, what a delight it was to experience my first literal snipe hunt with a successful capture on the sensor. There is, of course, still plenty of room for improvement on future snipe hunts. Yeah, it's both.
