It is a Curlew!

I was sitting on a beach at Santa Ana a few days ago, suddenly I saw a bird with brow feather and skinny legs playing with ocean waves.  I was immediately attracted by its long Narrow beak with slight downcurving, which just looks like a needle.  To my surprise such a beak can dig into sand and pick up small pieces of foods very easily.

After coming back from my trip, I used the key phrase “ocean bird with long beak” to google the name of this kind of bird.

I found that it is actually a curlew!
