Brief Summary

Read full entry
It's not difficult to recognize a curlew. It has a long beak curved downward. This long beak can be seen from a long distance. And if you can't recognize it by sight, then you just need to use your ears! You can't mistake the sound they make: a kind of yoddling vibration. Once you've heard it, you'll never mistake it.
