More Long-billed Curlew pics

I took these two pics of one of the Long-billed Curlews as it landed in a field which provides good views of their cinnamon underwing plumage. Besides their unusual physical characteristics, Long-billed Curlews are a special species as they are on the National Audubon Society 'Watch List' as there are thought to fewer than 20,000 birds in total and they lost a lot of habitat. They are listed in Colorado as a Species of Concern. I always feel grateful whenever I find them. SeEtta
