Long-billedCurlew:video clip of male and female calling


This video clip begins with the male Long-billed Curlew as it begins giving warning calls in response to me setting up my video on a tripod across the road from the field in which he is foraging. Then it goes to the female, distinctive with her much longer and more distinctly curved bill, who takes up giving the warning calls while I am still unaware that they have a chick in the field (they were so close to the road I didn't think they would have a nest there and couldn't see the chick as it was so small).
