This Eurasian Curlew is no.34. It is one of several that were saved and raised by WWT Slimbridge and released into the Wild.
The Eggs were found near Military Runways and would normally have to be destroyed under an individual licence to protect flight safety. Because these birds have declined so much a conservation project was put in place to save them and to help rejuvenate the population.

The bird is so sharp and clear! And a different, interesting background of a similar color.

Thanks Bob! The similar coloring of the bird and water were a happy accident.

Nice one, Mike! I like the way he's looking at me.

Thanks Bob, but I actually think he was looking at me. ;-)a :p

Not really my best bird portrait, but it's my quirkiest (so far). I've been trying to get a clear, well-composed shot of a cardinal since I bought my Tamron 150-600 two months ago. I finally got within 50 feet of one. Too bad the poor bird was mid-molt :-|

The way I see it; that's a really nice portrait shot, but the cardinal just didn't bother to dress for the occasion. ;-)a :p

Thanks for your positive comments on both shots, Mike. I thought my shot of the molting cardinal was interesting, but certainly not beautiful.

Funny watching these guys when an owl is around!

I'll bet they get pretty excited.

Very interesting, Paul. In Ireland, it is predicted that the Curlew will be extinct as a breeding population within 10 years, if action is not taken to save them, right away. I'm still seeing curlews here in the US, but not in the numbers that I did back in the mid to late 1900's. I certainly hope that efforts to save them are successful.

Nice capture, by the way.
