Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Smallest of the Asian curlews, just larger than a snipe. Found in open fields, grasslands, and pastures and also on coastal mudflats during migration. Large eyes give this bird a gentle appearance. Paler and more warmly colored than other curlews, Little also lacks the pale rump of Eurasian and Far Eastern and lacks the strong facial stripes and longer bill of Whimbrel. Flight call a high-pitched, ringing “pipipi”, higher than Whimbrel’s.
