The Curlew Verdict

Cory from See You At Sunrise... has procured the information I was looking for on this Long-billed Curlew, seen at Border Field State Park, CA, in early July. She was banded in Nevada's Ruby Valley in 2006 , and has since been found wintering in coastal southern San Diego County since. Ruby Valley lies south of Elko, at the foot of the legendary Ruby Mountains.

If you're a migratory bird, it must be convenient to be on your wintering grounds by the beginning of July.

  1. How very interesting, Steve! She's a beauty and would definitely be a life bird for me. ~karen
