I photographed this male Long-billed Curlew last week as he was starting to lift off. It has been wonderful hearing their calls again and seeing them poking around in the new growth of grasses. They are selecting mates already.

I found some Long-billed Curlews in a new location in Tooele County, that was pretty exciting. I’m happy that they are back, I guess you all can tell!
