What an amazing shot! These are really hard to see at all--I've seen a few flying at night, just a glance, and have heard them calling when I'm in the right areas. This is wonderful, seeing such detail, and with chicks. Great work.
I've been wanting to photograph one of these for a while now. I hope I get the chance soon. Any hints or ideas on how to find one would be appreciated. I live in southern Mississippi. Got Snipe photos but no Will. Great shot, by the way. I like the light in his eye and colors. Beautiful bird and image.
