Imperial Snipe

Gallinago imperialis Sclater & Salvin, 1869

The Imperial Snipe (Gallinago imperialis) is a small stocky wader which breeds in the Andes. For a century it was known only from two specimens collected near Bogotá, Colombia, and was presumed extinct, but it was rediscovered in Peru in 1967 and Ecuador in 1988. It is not known if it is migratory. Source: Wikipedia
