Greater Painted Snipe

 Greater  Snipe
Greater Painted Snipe ( Male)  = राज चहा=This bird can be seen near waterbodies,having marshes,vegetated pools and stream banks. Difficult to find out as it prefers to merge itself in marshes ,elephant grassand due to small size( 25 cm), color,wings pattern, slow movement U  Have to wait silently for hours, However I was Lucky to see it in a seculeded water -body near Yamuna.
                 I could not spot any Female Greater Snipe which is more Colorful than the Male, Hope to see next time:
