ESKIMO CURLEW RESEARCH NOW AVAILABLE

Plumage states of the Eskimo Curlew
Our Eskimo Curlew research is now available as an open access document at http://www.birdconservationresearch.org/…/eskimo%20curlew%2…
It investigates the external anatomy of males vs. females and adults vs. juveniles, and identifies two previously undescribed plumage states. One of these states (see photo) exhibits prominent y-shaped markings on the breast whereas the other exhibits linear markings. It also documents, based on specimen data, the species' historical distribution.
