Long-Billed Curlew – This species is the largest member of the sandpiper family in North America. Their beaks are impressively long, at a whopping eight inches. Unlike most birds, female Long-Billed Curlews leave the male to care for the young when they are about two or three weeks old. Whimbrel – Whimbrels are the most common species of. 2 of 2 Long-billed curlew flying over the coastal prairie with snow geese on a winter morning. The related Eskimo curlew is probably extinct. .
breeding site for the Long-billed Curlew. It is the goal of the NNLP to learn more about the curlew and to reverse the decline of this species. The Long-billed Curlew is a large and distinctive shorebird of dry short- and mixed-grass prairies of western North America. From April to July, it . long-billed curlew may require moderate to heavy grazing to maintain habitat condition. Prescribed burns may be necessary in some areas to maintain the stature of breeding habitat and to reflect the historic spatial extent and temporal pattern of prairie wildfires. A major conservation issue in the 21st Century, especially in Region 2, will be.
The strong tendency of Long-billed Curlews and other godwit and curlew species to return to the same breeding and nonbreeding areas year after year (Colwell and Oring , Gill et al. , this study) suggests an important fitness component to site fidelity. How habitat loss at traditional sites and the varied schedules of habitat. Research Interests: Avian ecology, green parakeet, long-billed curlew, changing birdlife, breeding biology, shorebirds, bird conservation. We are interested in habitat use, ecology, and conservation of the birds of the Lower Rio Grande Valley.

"The curlew is the largest of the Paleartic waders, its long down-curving bill making it instantly recognisable. There are few other birds which can match the beauty of its calls.
This book first describes how the curlew's habitat range has expanded considerably in the twentieth century to include many lowland breeding areas, and then examines. Annual migratory patterns of long-billed curlews in the American West.

Ecology and behavior of the long-billed curlew in Southeastern Washington. [Washington]: Wildlife Society, (OCoLC) Document Type: Book: All Authors /. The long-billed curlew is the largest sandpiper of regular occurrence in North America.
It is 50–65 cm (20–26 in) long, 62–90 cm (24–35 in) across the wing and weighs – g (– lb). Its disproportionally long bill curves downward and measures – cm (– in), and rivals the bill of the larger-bodied Far Eastern curlew as the longest bill of any : Aves.

Jenni, Donald A. Bammann, Al. The Long-billed Curlew is an upland shorebird that breeds only in the North American grasslands. It winters in coastal and inland areas of California, Texas, Louisiana and along the Pacific coast of Mexico as far south as El Salvador and Costa Rica.
Approximately 16% of the Long-billed Curlew’s global breeding range occurs in Canada. 4 Program in Ecology, Evolution, and Conservation Biology, University of Nevada, Reno, information is sparse for the Long-billed Curlew (Numenius americanus), a North American endemic shorebird of behavior across the breeding range to adequately capture variation in migratory patterns of a species.

LONG-BILLED CURLEWS FROM OREGON LAWRENCE J. BLUS CHARLES J. HENNY AND ALEXANDER J. KRYNITSKY The range and population size of the Long-billed Curlew (Numenius americanus) have diminished drastically since the early s; continued loss of breeding and wintering habitats has raised concern for the future of this species (Allen ).
Long-billed curlew (Numenius americanus) Predation, predominantly by large mammalian predators such as coyotes, was the greatest cause of nest failure in long-billed curlews Hartman and Oring. Long-billed curlew eggs are more common targets for predation, and after a nest is raided the parents abandon the clutch.
Redmond and Jenni () found that the majority of eggs lost are consumed by coyotes and feral dogs, followed by badgers (Taxidea taxis), and birds such as the common raven (Corvus corax) and black-billed magpie (Pica. We documented differences in diet composition of territorial Long-billed Curlews (Numenius americanus) feeding in different locations within the Elk River Estuary, Humboldt Bay, California.
We used direct observations to measure diet because curlews often handled prey for long periods (up to 4 min), which enabled us to identify prey and to estimate size. Curlews ate mainly five benthic. Long-billed Curlews, most of which have focused on breeding and nesting ecology of the species.
Gaps remain in informa-tion about factors affecting population dynamics on the winter grounds and the linkages between Long-billed Curlew popula-tions on the breeding range, migration routes, and winter range.

The purpose of this project is to: 1) Identify wintering Long-billed Curlews in Mexicali Valley and northern Gulf of California with the use of satellite transmitter data, and 2) Coordinate wintering Long-billed Curlew monitoring to gain valuable information on wintering habitat preferences, roosting and foraging behavior, and document threats.
