The long-billed curlew (Numenius americanus) is a bird in the family Scolopacidae. It is the largest shorebird, or wader, native to North America. It is also a migratory species that flies to warmer climates in the winter. As the name suggests, its long bill, curved downward, is characteristic, although more spectacular in females.
The caption reads in the original French:
Corlieu à long bec (Numenius longirostris).
