Curlew Sandpiper in breeding plumage


* The Curlew Sandpiper, Calidris ferruginea, is a small wader which breeds on the tundra of Arctic Siberia. It is strongly migratory, wintering mainly in Africa, but also in south and southeast Asia and in Australasia. It is a vagrant to North America.

This is a fairly unusual species, and has been proposed as as type species of the genus Erolia but the DNA sequence data is currently insufficient to resolve its relationships (Thomas et al., 2004). This matter is of taxonomic relevance since, as the Curlew Sandpiper is the type species, a close relationship with the small "stint" sandpipers would preclude the use of Erolia for the present species.

The Curlew Sandpiper is one of the species to which the Agreement on the Conservation of African-Eurasian Migratory Waterbirds (AEWA) applies

Merhaba Selen,
Ne güzel bir kuş böyle! Henüz görme şansım olmadı. Ters ışıkta bu kadar detaylı ve kusursuz bir kare çekmek tam bir ustalık işi. Sudaki aydınlık, gölgede kalan göz ve gaga detayları gerçekten enfes. Emeğine sağlık.

Hi Selen

We get these here in teh Sydney region too, migrating from eastern Siberia. I have only seen afew in breeding plumage like this one though, they usually fly to northern Australia before they moult into breeding dress.
This is a good shot. Great low-down POV and great sharpness.

Hello Selen,
I want to thank you for all the excellent photos you posted the last two years. Today I'm two years a member on TN and it was very nice to notice that there was someone with the same interests as myself, specially birds.
This photo is also an impressive example of your talent. Fantastic!

Hi Selen.
It is very nice bird, which I have never met. You have reflected its colouration, feathers and other attractive details excellently. I like sharpness of the bird image as well as pleasant small ripples on the water. My kind regards and compliments.
