Whimbrels in Galapagos - Birdwatching - Ecuador

Brown, medium-sized birds commonly sighted along the seashore, whimbrels are most easily identified by their long, narrow, curved beaks. They're common in Galapagos and in much of the world. Whimbrels migrate, preferring to nest in colder northern climes.

Whimbrels eat small fish, insects and crustaceans. They are commonly seen in or near tidal pools, poking around for a good meal.
