Long-billedCurlew-video clip of the chick with the female

In this clip the Long-billed Curlew is seen near the female. First it stands in place as the parents had been giving warning calls. Standing by the female provides a good perspective on the size of the chick--the adults are about 2 foot in length so this chick is about 6-10 inches in length. At the end the clip shows the chick about 25 feet from the female engaged in independent foraging. SeEtta
