The curlew is the largest European wading bird having long, slender, downcurved bills and mottled brown plumage. Its name represents the Eurasian curlewÂ’s call. There are a total of 9 species of these birds. They are found across the world, having strong migratory habits. Their distribution have changed significantly over the past century because of the changing agricultural practices.
A new study has found that those curlews that were reared in captivity behaved similar to their wild counterparts. They were found to be capable of mixing with wild curlews.
