What brought this bird to this harsh place? Was he/she exploring a new territory? Or something else? He/she didn’t stayed for a long time there but long enough that I was able to take a few pictures.
After taking off the curlew was flying so low for a short time.
Changed his/her mind abruptly and decided to stay for a little longer at this place.
Just a little stroll before leaving.
I believe that this is a juvenile Long-Billed Curlew but not sure. What confuses me that Long-Billed Curlew has a very long bill, this young bird doesn’t.
