Great Stone-curlew


The Great Stone-curlew or Great Thick-knee (Scientific name: Esacus recurvirostris) is a resident breeder in tropical southern Asia from India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh into South-east Asia. This species prefers gravel banks along rivers or large lakes, and also beaches. It is mainly nocturnal like other stone-curlews, but can frequently be seen foraging during the day, moving slowly and deliberately, with occasional short runs, says Wiki.
