Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Large, buffy shorebird with exceptionally long, upturned, bicolored bill. Overall warm coloration, especially bright on the wings in flight, helps separate from other godwits. Similar in color to Long-billed Curlew, but obviously different bill shape and darker legs. Breeds in wet prairies. During migration and winter, found in a variety of shallow wetlands, especially mudflats, beaches, and estuaries. Often in flocks with other large shorebirds like Willet and Whimbrel.
