Subject: Long-billed Curlew, Union County
This afternoon around 2:00 PM while working at a PSE&G site in the marshes
of Linden, a familiar whistling call, a 'curlee' came to my attention as it
became louder and louder and soon a Long-billed Curlew flew by- a large
shorebird with a long curved beak and cinnamon coloring. It came from the
south and continued north. I'm not certain of it's presence whether it was
passing through or is still in the area. That section of Linden is private
I believe and doesn't allow visitation by birders.
Unfortunately, birding wasn't my primary objective there, though I always
keep an open ear with the marsh nearby. I don't have photos and wasn't
allowed to have my phone handy on site for the task I was doing and left it
in the car; apologies for this belated report.
Hopefully it is found nearby and do keep an eye out.
