Hi Bob, wonderful series on the Curlew! It is a cool looking bird. Happy Friday!
It sure is, cheers Eileen.
i like how his coloration compliments the grasses. :)
Beautiful images of this Curlew.He needs deep into the mud to search for food.Well done, Bob.
Yes indeed, the mud is soft, very good for Curlews Irma.
It was seen by your "non-500mm" eyes earlier.
Nice one Adam.
Bob, nice shots.Slimbridge have plenty of money, ask them to move the hide nearer.
Some of the hides are positioned wrong, I'll tell them Adrian.
...did better than I could have with my little 300
Strange and wonderful, BobALOHA from HonoluluComfortSpiral <3
Pues a pesar de la distancia las fotografías nos muestran muy bien incluso el barro que lleva pegado al pico.Un abrazo,
Thanks very much, I will try to keep them smaller Miguel.
Hi Bob,wieder geniale Fotos von dem Brachvogel, der wirklich nicht oftzu sehen ist.Danke für die heutige Musik, die ich sehr vermisst habe.Eine guten Start ins Wochenende wünscht DirIrmi
Nice shots- even if it was a bit far away. This is another bird that I have never seen before. Have a super weekend!
wat is hij mooi.
I love your eye for subtle detail, Bob...beautiful movement.
Thank you Dawn.
beautiful bird and imageshappy weekend
Hola Bob,buenas tomas,a pesar de la lejania del Zarapito.Un abrazo
I like seeing birds in habitat too though, Bob, and even at that distance I can see it's bill is shorter than the Curlew we have here!
I'd like to see one Sonja.
Very much in focus!
Beautifully photographed Bob kind and nice.Nice weekend, greetings Tinie
A very muddy bill. I hope its hunting was as successful as yours. A great series. Again.
It hunts far better that I can EC.
Wonderful images Bob... shows the bird in it's habitat so well.
Bob, far away but beautiful! Glad I don't have to stick my nose into the mud to find things to eat!
What a beautiful bird, Bob, and that beak is amazing!Wishing you a wonderful weekend.
Thanks Lisa, and you have a beautiful weekend as well.
As always, stunning images! I love Curlews... those beaks are fascinating and incredibly effective.
Hi Bob!! Wow what a unique beak!!
Wonderful shots of the bird in the grass.
Hi Bob,Indeed curlews are very shy and elusive birds, I also find it very difficult to get close enough for decent pictures!Your 500 mm did a very good job though and these photos are quite detailed in spite of the distance :)One can even see the mud on the beak!!Well done, keep well!!
Strange little thingies on his beak. Such a pretty bird.
That is mud on its beak Thérèse.
To me it's always a miracle that they can find food and eat with this beak. Fantastic photo's Bob.
Deep in the ground probably looking for food, because it has mud on the bow. Regards.
You are dead right, the soft mud is on its bill Giga.
Het is je goed gelukt we kunnen het heel mooi zien zelfs de veertjes knap hoor lieve groetjes Danielle

I am glad that you liked the Waxwing Dimi.
Beautiful, very beautiful this curlew. His special curve beak is still always a nice to see:-) Greeting, Helma
