Fabulous-Long-billed Curlews in Canon City area


I was so surprised and delighted yesterday when I spotted these Long-billed Curlews feeding in a hay field that was being flooded. I have never seen them in Fremont County or even closer than 100 miles east of here. I found a flock of 14 then found 3 more in nearby flooded field for a total of 17 of these birds that are a species of concern. More pics to come. SeEtta
