Beach Snipe Shooting, Currier & Ives

D'Amour Museum of Fine Arts

Scene of a man sitting in sand on beach, basket beside him to right.; dead birds to his left and he is watching with an aimed rifle, the birds along shoreline.

A lone hunter sits cross-legged on the beach pointing his rifle towards the water, where the common snipe frequents. His day is successful, evident from the several birds that lie next to him.
