Pintail Snipe

Gallinago stenura (Bonaparte, 1831)

The Pin-tailed Snipe (Gallinago stenura) also known as the Pintail Snipe, is a small stocky wader. It breeds in northern Russia and migrates to spend the non-breeding season in southern Asia from Pakistan to Indonesia. It is the most common migrant snipe in southern India, Sri Lanka and much of Southeast Asia. It is a vagrant to north-western and northern Australia, and to East Africa Kenya. Source: Wikipedia
