Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Beach Stone-curlew, Esacus giganteus also known as Beach Thick-knee is a large, ground-dwelling bird occurs in Australasia, the islands of South-east Asia and India. At 55 cm (22 in) and 1 kg (2.2 lbs), it is one of the world's largest shorebirds.It is less strictly nocturnal than most stone-curlews, and can sometimes be seen foraging by daylight, moving slowly and deliberately, with occasional short runs. It tends to be wary and fly off into the distance ahead of the observer, employing slow, rather stiff wingbeats.show more
