Wilson's Snipe (Gallinago delicata) was considered to be a subspecies of the Common Snipe (G. gallinago) until 2003 when it was given its own species status. BirdLife/IUCN hasn't yet incorporated this split, but eBird has. New World Birds should be ID'd as G. delicata, old world birds as this narrower concept of G. gallinago.
