Re: Ocean Beach Shorebird

Hi Brian and all-

I’ve referred to this individual as a ‘Short-billed Long-billed Curlew’ It has been on Funston Beach since August or so. I posted some photos to eBird which I can link up later. It certainly gives an interesting first impression, but just a bird with some sort of bill deformity.

Good birding, Peter

Seen this morning around Lawton.  I don't think I'm looking for an ID, but am interested in whether others have seen such a bill shape before.  This is my first photo post on the list, so I hope it works.
