Far Eastern Curlew

Numenius madagascariensis (Linnaeus, 1766)

The Far Eastern Curlew (Numenius madagascariensis) is a large shorebird most similar in appearance to the Long-billed Curlew, but slightly larger. It is mostly brown in color, differentiated from other curlews by its plain, unpatterned brown underwing. It is not only the largest curlew but probably the world's largest sandpiper, at 60–66 cm (24–26 in) in length and 110 cm (43 in) across the wings. The body is reportedly 565–1,150 g (1.25–2.5 lb), which may be equaled by the Eurasian Curlew. The extremely long bill, at 12.8–20.1 cm (5.0–7.9 in) in length, rivals the bill size of the closely related Long-billed Curlew as the longest bill for a sandpiper. Source: Wikipedia
