Species: numenius phaeopus
Location: Morib, Selangor
Description: Hundreds of migrating Whimbrel stalk the tidal mudflats of Morib, feeding on soldier crabs. These waders stick their long curved bills into the mud and probe for food. Habitat loss and change such as land reclamation and development affect shorebirds such as these. (This image was published in the Malaysian Naturalist magazine, 2007 Vol 61-1)
