TALKIN WITH DOKKEN: How do snipe make that creepy sound?
Q. I’ve been hearing a bird this spring, usually near dusk, that makes a kind of creepy, haunting sound. I thought it was a whippoorwill, but when I pointed out the sound last weekend by the campfire, I was corrected and told the bird is actually a Wilson’s snipe. How do the birds produce that sound?
