Author Jason Girvan

Latham's snipe, Gallinago hardwickii, also known as the Japanese snipe, is a medium-sized, long-billed, migratory snipe of the East Asian–Australasian Flyway. It is identifiable as a Gallinago snipe by its cryptically-patterned black, brown, buff and white plumage, but is not easily distinguished from Swinhoe's snipe and pin-tailed snipe in the field, though it is slightly larger. Order: Charadriiformes, Suborder: Scolopaci, Family: Scolopacidae, Genus: Gallinago, Species: Gallinago hardwickii (J.E.Gray, 1831).
