Location: Elkhorn Slough near Moss Landing, California, US
Long-billed curlews have long legs and a very long, curved bill. As shown in this image, the bill is also notable for being pink at the base. Feathers on the body and wings are barred. The cinnamon colored wing patches are just barely visible in this photo.
