Long-billed Curlew with Crabs

Long-billed Curlews are crazy awesome birds. It’s pretty amazing to see them at work. They can get those bills down pretty far into the sand in search of crabs and other food. I found this one at Fort De Soto yesterday. It was actively probing the sand, and I saw it catch at least two crabs. If I found nothing else in the park than this, it would have been a good day.
