This is just a simple Long-billed Curlew post with images I took not long before I discovered the Mountain Plovers on April 10th on Antelope Island State Park. The Mountain Plovers were great but so are the Long-billed Curlews.
I think that Long-billed Curlews are elegant and graceful shorebirds and their colors are earthy but vibrant plus they are a lot of fun to observe and photograph.
This Long-billed Curlew was about to lift off when I photographed it so I like the pose and how dynamic it feels.
More Long-billed Curlews have arrived here and just two days ago I heard my first of year Willets calling on the island so soon I will be photographing them again.
