Curlew and Whimbrel

December 1st, 2007, seetharam

My favourite North American shorebirds are Long-billed Curlew and Whimbrel. Couple of best places to watch these elusive birds closely in their natural habitat are San Joaquin Wildlife Sanctuary and Bolsa Chica Ecological Reserve in Southern California.

I have had a pleasure of shooting these two birds in my several recent trips to San Joaquin Wildlife Sanctuary and Bolsa Chica Wetlands.

Long-billed Curlew is the largest shorebird in North America. Breeds in the grasslands. Whimbrel is a similar shorebird with slightly shorter bill. Long-billed Curlew and Whimbrel are often seen together in the grasslands.
