    Default Jack Snipe? Santo André lagoon Alentejo, Portugal

    I think this is a Jack Snipe. Can you confirm please or is it another bird?

    Thanks,

    Bert

    Thank you Tarsiger, I learned that I have to forget about size and look for more specific details.

    It can take a long time to learn not to trust our own eyes! Specific details and shape, structure, habits and calls too!

    Well, the Cuckoo is easy enough but of course you are right. I´m learning every day but can identify the "normal" ones around here and also know where to find them. Some birds are just more difficult then others.
