Painted Snipe in Townsville

Most of you in Townsville would think that the Painted Snipe was mythical. Well all that changed when Annette and Ray Sutton reported the sighting and photographing of a Painted Snipe on Sunday 15 Nov 08 at Cluden.

Best time to see it seems to be early morning and late afternoon. The bird was still  there late in the afternoon on 20th November 2008.
