A typical-looking snipe found at high elevations in the Andes from extreme western Venezuela to northern Peru. Intricately patterned with brown, black, and white. Compare with Andean Snipe; Noble is paler overall with an unmarked white belly, more obvious white stripes on the upperparts, and a longer bill. Scarce; usually seen singly in marshes or bogs in páramo, often only when flushed.
