HERMES

Flying Snipes Brooch

Reference : 8344



Très proche de la bécasse, mais plus petit, cet oiseau migrateur est originaire des pays de l'Est.        En France, le drainage des marais est en grande partie la cause de la diminution de sa population.    Lorsque le chasseur la débusque, la bécassine s'envole prestement en zigzagant, ce qui lui sauve souvent la vie.

It is a migratory bird native to Eastern contries, very close to the woodcook, but smaller. In France, the drainage of marshes is largely the reason of the decrease of its population. When the hunter flushes it out, the snipe quickly zizags away, which often saves its life.
