This should have started as a trivia question. Who has ever seen this bird. It turns out they are all over North America. However, they hide, really good at it too.
They sit down and freeze if you come close. They look like a rock and move like one. I probably could have picked him up.
A little research and I find not many people have seen or photographed this bird. I know it was a first for us.
Bird ID Update: Based on feed back and information from people who know more than I this is probably a Woodcock, not a snipe.
