I saw this group of Curlews across the water channel along the Wildlife Drive. Usually I only see one working an area, but here I saw 3 working an area for a meal. The one on the left caught something, not sure what it was but usually when they peck at the ground or forage in grasses they are going after grasshoppers, beetles or other insects. If you see them going deeper with their long bills they are foraging for earthworms, shrimp, clams, etc. This group was just slowly walking and pecking at the ground. But it was fun to see a small group working an area out in the open.
It’s nice to see them. Great, clear shots!
Thanks! Usually they are hidden in the grasses along the shoreline. It was fun to see them out in the open here.
