Around midday today while XC skiing at Bear Swamp, which had a good 6+ inches 
of snow cover, I flushed from a small snow-free patch of wet grassy muck a 
snipe or woodcock, which flew off not too far and interestingly looked to have 
landed on a tree branch at about eye level. Alas without binoculars it was too 
far to make out. As it flew off I noted a reddish tail, which would imply 
Wilson's Snipe, though I suppose I could've been seeing some of the reddish 
underparts of a woodcock.
