Solitary Snipe

Gallinago solitaria Hodgson, 1831

The Solitary Snipe (Gallinago solitaria) is a small stocky wader. It breeds discontinuously in the mountains of eastern Asia, in eastern Russia, Kazakhstan Kyrgyzstan and Mongolia. Many birds are sedentary in the high mountains, or just move downhill in hard weather, but others are migratory, wintering in northeast Iran, Pakistan, northern India and Japan. It is a vagrant to Saudi Arabia, eastern India and Hong Kong. Source: Wikipedia
