Research and Conservation Needs of Long-Billed Curlews Wintering in the SJV RegionSonoran Joint Venture News E-Bulletin (2017)
Long-billed Curlew populations are declining in portions of their range, especially in southwestern Idaho. Habitat loss and degradation, along with human disturbance, appear to be the biggest factors. Since 2013, the Intermountain Bird Observatory (IBO) has worked with many partners to track Long-billed Curlews from breeding areas in the Intermountain West to wintering areas in California and Mexico, including locations in the SJV region. By placing satellite transmitters on birds, we have been able to expand our understanding of this species beyond their breeding grounds in Idaho, Montana, and Wyoming. We are learning more about migratory routes, stopover sites during migration, wintering locations, and the habitats curlews use throughout the year.
