Long-Billed Curlew Expedition

The Long-billed Curlew tracking project was an effort by Smithsonian Institute and GA DNR to determine the connectivity of wintering Long-billed Curlew (LBCU) along the Georgia coast to their breeding grounds in the interior United States. A LBCU was tagged on the Georgia coast and tracked to the breeding grounds. A small population of LBCU winters along the Atlantic coast marshes every winter and this was the first insight into origins of those birds.
