Long billed curlew.

These birds have the most amazing ,yes…long beak!!! They pry for little critters under the sand,pop them up with their beak, and then chase them across the sand.I am pretty sure that these critters are their main food and are called Lepidozona,a type of Chiton ,as they have a scaly , hard back, i found lots of the dried out backs on the beach.IMG_4498
