Long-billed Curlew In Parksville

Earlier this week there was a "probable Whimbrel" reported from the Englishman River Estuary, near Parksville, BC. Because the bird was reported to have been "buffy with dark wrist patches, I thought I should go have a look. As I suspected, it was actually a Long-billed Curlew, and a fairly brightly colored one, at that. This is the fourth Long-billed Curlew I have seen in this area, although all of the other ones were Spring sightings.
