Far Eastern Curlew
The Far Eastern Curlew is the largest shorebird in the world weighing in at around 1.2 kilograms and is only found in the East Asian-Australasian Flyway.
The bill length of the Far Eastern Curlew can help to tell it apart from other shorebirds. Unlike a Whimbrel, its curved beak is so long that if it turned its head around, it could touch its tail.
Far-eastern Curlews are also seen on occassion with vagrant Eurasian Curlews. To verify the latter, look for the white rump and tail easily seen during flight.
