[Snipe] Greater Painted Snipe 彩鷸

Greater Painted Snipe 彩鷸

Having seen a female and a male hiding behind the reeds with binocular, I decided to wait.  There was no movement from the two until one or two hours later.  The female crept out from its hiding place.  I slowly moved my position so that the whole female could be imaged.  After taking a few shoots of the female, I suddenly recognized two more males pop up in open field!!  Its already busy to shoot 3 GPS together!! As the party went on, the Water Rail (the one in the area) decided it should have a walk also under the sun shine and joined the party.  It was a very busy moment getting 4 birds simultaneously!
