Ed, the resemblance between the two birds is striking, but after googling the two species I'm not so sure they are as closely related as it looks. Penolta?

Not close at all - the Limpkin is related to cranes and the Curlews to sandpipers.

But the curlew is related to our Whimbrels - they are on the same page in my bird field guide (can't you tell how HOPELESS I am as a birder!??!).
