A snipe is any of about 26 wading bird species in three genera in the family Scolopacidae. They are characterized by a very long, slender bill, eye placed high on the head, and crypsis , or camouflage, plumage. The Gallinago snipes have a nearly worldwide distribution, the Lymnocryptes snipe is restricted to Asia and Europe and the Coenocorypha snipes are found only in the outlying islands of New Zealand. The four species of painted snipe are not closely related to the typical snipes, and are placed in their own family, the Rostratulidae. Snipes search for invertebrates in the mud with a "sewing-machine" action of their long bills. The sensitivity of the bill is caused by filaments belonging to the fifth pair of nerves, which run almost to the tip and open immediately under the soft cuticle in a series of cells; a like adaptation is found in sandpipers ; they give this portion of the surface of the premaxillaries a honeycomb-like appearance: with these filaments the bird can sense its food in the mud without seeing it.
I don't see anywhere in your post where there is a complete commitment. Funny thing is he told me when we met that he was ready to stop focusing so much on work and start focusing more on his life. I haven't read every post like you probably havebut I've read a lot of them. I am fortunate to be married to a surgeon who, although he has "the ego," he maintains Christian values in our home.
