My first pictures of both of these birds. Would have like to have been closer.

I could not ID the other bird, anyone?

Nice shots - AGAIN.

The long billed curlew is rare in Brooklyn, I've only seen one once, and couldn't get a shot. They only come here as "strays."

The other birds are either Long Billed or Short Billed Dowitchers. They're almost impossible to tell apart. My book tells me to listen to the crys they make - good luck with that theory....

Still,, my book tells me that the long billed are common in the west, while the short billed are common in the east - so chances are....

Thank a lot DBB.

I just checked the book and believe you have nailed it. The long billed dowitcher it is.

Great pics zoomn!
Really love the lighting in the first.
Nice DOF in the second!

DynamoHum - I really don't think that this picrure needs such correction. It is good as it is! Your version is too bright and doesn't look very well. Don't know what you were trying to correct. :roll:

Cheers!
