This wading bird has a long, pointed bill, short neck and legs that are not very long. These
characteristics allow the snipe to feed in the mud edging lakes, swamps and rivers. They
feed on worms, insects and snails. The eyes are well set back and the plumage is mottled in
varying shades of brown and white. The common snipe is 10.5 inches long and can be found in
North and South America, Europe, and Asia.
