I have to admit that I was well into reading this article before it
struck me that it was written on April 1 :)
It's entertaining anyway!
I have also read with interest the reports of Common Snipe in
Connecticut as of late. Having spent much time in England in recent
years the subject of Wilson's vs Common/Eurasian Snipe is debated with
earnest. So when I read the reports, I immediately thought WOW but I
suspect the CT birds reported are Wilson's. Or is there a name change
in the works (again)?
I had the same reaction to a post some time ago that was titled,
"Allen's Meadow Pipit" as a Meadow Pipit would be quite a sighting in
Connecticut! Of course, the post referred to a Pipit that was seen at
Allen's Meadow. Oh, literal me!
