- Wilson’s snipe is a large shorebird (10.5 inches long and weighing about 4 oz). Like most shorebirds, this species likes to forage on mudflats and in water less than three inches deep in wetlands and along shorelines. Snipe will use their 3-inch long bill to probe into the mud for such morsels as larvae and earthworms. Snipe nest in Canada and across the northern tier of the U.S.
