The Whimbrel is a member of the Curlew family. It is primarily a coastal species found on marshes, beaches and rocky shores, often in flocks, but it forages singly. It feeds more by picking, less by probing, than other Curlews.

Photo taken on the beach in Guayabitos back in 2008 by Roger Williams. Roger happens to be Allyson’s (founder of Jaltemba Bay Life) Dad and is an avid (and incredible) nature photographer. I am beaming with pride that he submitted a photo to use in our little newsletter. Thanks Dad!
