  1. Hello Monica!:) I really enjoyed the vídeo of the Beach stone-curlew. It's an unusual looking bird, and the little bobbing motion of the head is cute.

  2. Wow...awesome!! Such an unusual bird. Isn't it always the case tho....the unique birds are always so far away.

  3. What a sweet, interesting bird! Love it's sound!
