We don’t mean migratory curlews any disservice by showing a Bush Stone-curlew in this post. The Eastern Curlew is Critically Endangered and we urge everyone to find out what they can do to help protect them. www.actforbirds.org/eastern-curlew

Isn't world curlew day about the migratory curlews? And in Australia, that would be the Eastern Curlew. www.birdlife.org.au/media/21-april-is-world-curlew-day/

(bush&beach) Stone-curlews are actually not real curlews which are long distance migrating wader birds. But who doesn't like a bush stone-curlew, they are so cute 🙂

This little fella is in the rental car park at Townsville airport - not a good home - he did have a mate

Love these screeching creatures 😃

World curlew day you say?

Let’s not forget the Beach-Stone curlew, which is more under threat, as more people are taking their dogs to the beach, up here in the North, and these shy birds with risky nests, are being displaced. Dog owners (I am a dedicated one) please be sure to control your dog on the beach, and don’t allow them to chase the feeding shore birds.

We have about 15 in our street and they move garden to garden as they wish. Most mornings they all have a meeting in the middle of the road😑

When world curlew day includes stone-curlews Jasmine haha

Paul Simms Happy Curlew Day!!!!!!!!! 😊

Here’s a Curlew!

I have two nesting in my front garden, my sister calls them my natural statues! 😀

So so LOVE these birds ❤️❤️ but feel for them through loss of habitat , ignorance and cruelty 😔😔

Oh, I love these birds. Amy 😍

Remember the Curlew call when we lived in the bush.

There's nothing like being out in the bush on a moonlight night & hearing the eerie call of the Bush Thick-knee (as they are now known. )

Cass Luker - we have these in our street!

Nicole Davey! I’m a day late sorry 😘

They are lovely birds! But have a temper at certain times (breeding of course). This was taken at Main Beach, Gold Coast. I couldn't believe how many there were!

I saw them in Townsville this week xx

Hahaha..love these guys xo

Used to see them at Gold Coast Arts Centre.

These are such funny birdies 🦅

Nel look, it’s your favourite bird!!!

It was fantastic to spend time with you and the pupils today 🙂 Good luck for the tree planting tomorrow!

Fascinating insight into the longevity of other species! Maybe you might reconsider having Orange Roughy for dinner?! It might be older than your great grandparents!!

Tuatara is wrong, they can live well over 100 years >_> we're not 100% sure over here (NZ) It is documented that thy can still breed in their 100's >_>
