AK - Bristle-thighed Curlew - 07/01
Bristle-thighed Curlew - Coffee Dome, Nome, Alaska. July 1st, 2012. Much anticipated highlight from our three day visit to Nome. The views were perhaps the best that we've had on any Birdfinders tour to Alaska. This bird simply flew towards our group and began foraging right in front of us! Digi-scoped shot using Canon Powershot A590 through Swarovski HD scope. JPS.
