Curlew Sandpiper

Curlew Sandpiper
This bird is the model for numerous decorative items which remind us of the beauty of nature.  There are carved, wooden versions of this bird and the long bill is always a surprise to me but as I observed some of these guys on my walk this morning I realized that their bills reallyare that long.

  1. Birds, whether real or sculptures, make such great subjects. Love the choice of background color.
