Long-billled Curlew

A Long-billed Curlew stands out from the rest of these shorebirds with his long orange bill. I shoot these images of it back in October of 2013 on a California vacation trip that lasted almost two weeks. We don’t have ether of these two birds that I’m aware of on the east coast so it was definitely neat for me to see them. Something different to find you know is always pleasing in one way or another I think. I think I took the pictures on Venture Beach but not totally sure.
