The South American snipe or Magellan snipe breeds in most of South America away from the Pacific coast and eastern Brazil, and also the Falkland Islands, Trinidad and possibly Tobago. The nominate lowland race G. p. paraguaiae is resident, but southern G. p. magellanicae (also called Patagonian snipe) migrates north in winter, abandoning Tierra del Fuego altogether.
