"Short-billed Dowitcher"
Short-billed Dowitcher:    Ehrlich, Dobkin, and Wheye, in their 1988 publication "The Birder's Handbook", write "The wierd name dowitcher is actually a corruption of 'Duitsch' (Dutch) or 'Deutscher' (German) Snipe. The name may be associated with the early Dutch population of New York and may have originated to distinguish it from the Common Snipe."
