The Common Snipe is a small, secretive bird that is found in wetlands throughout the world.

They live in marshes, bogs, and other wet habitats where they can find food and shelter.

These birds are well camouflaged and are difficult to see, but they can be identified by their long, pointed bill and their distinctive 'sneeze' call.

Common Snipes eat a variety of small animals, including insects, crustaceans, and fish.

They are able to dive into the water to catch their prey. In winter, Common Snipes migrate to warmer climates.
