In aerial display and calling
Calling in flight landing nearby. I saw this bird in a high altitude aerial Chase of a turkey vulture, divebombing it actively for a very long distance. Quite impressive
The Long-billed Curlew (Numenius americanus) is a large North American shorebird of the family Scolopacidae. This species was also called "sicklebird" and the "candlestick bird". The species is native to central and western North America. In the winter, the species migrates southwards, as well as towards the coastline.
