BiologyVery little is known about the natural ecology and behaviour of the slender-billed curlew due to the elusive nature of this species. In 1914, a single nest was found which contained four eggs, and a colonial nest site containing 14 nests has also been reported (7). These birds feed by walking slowly and occasionally pecking at the surface until a food item is located (7). They have been reported to feed on earthworms, insects and molluscs (7).
