Long-billed Curlews

On my trip last week to Montana I saw quite a few Long-billed Curlews. There were some to be found near the campground and on the roads to it.

One evening I saw a flock of seven near the shoreline of the Lower Lake of Red Rock Lakes National Wildlife Refuge, many of them were females.

But on a trip to Dillon using the back roads I also saw a flock of 50+, that is the most Long-billed Curlews I have ever seen in one place. I couldn’t get decent images of those curlews because of the angle of light but it was pretty impressive to see a flock of so many curlews in one location.

I just never know what nature is going to surprise me with!
