Flock of migrating Wilson's Snipe

Yesterday as I drove down MacKenzie Avenue I looked into a agricultural field that was partially flooded and saw some small objects. I turned around and returned to where I could look at them safely on this busy road and found some Wilson's Snipe foraging there. As I continued checking out that field with my scope I counted a total of 12 Wilson's Snipe, a species that does migrate in flocks. Below is a heavily cropped section that shows 3 of the birds closer up. SeEtta
