Very long bills.....and tongues.

Last night...a Common Snipe caught. We don't often catch Snipe in our Woodcock pastures. Three Woodcock caught last night in the interesting weather !
 No snakes in the pastures either, see below .........

And from Costa Rica;-
This a Rufous-tailed Hummingbird, an aggressive species of hummer with the amount of red on the mandibles a guide to ageing, complimenting bill striations and also a guide to sexing.

This Keel-billed Toucan was in a middle shelf pocket !!........No surprise he got out and grasped the mist net bamboo to gloat .........

This a Vine Snake (I think) found in the grounds of our accomodation at the Sea Turtle Conservancy.
A harmless snake...more snakes to come........
