Curlew or Whimbrel

Recommended Posts

Saw a flock of shorebirds as Pismo beach in Central coastal California yesterday looking directly into the sun so few details and then the flock took off. I have been seeing curlews so assumed they were but the bill looks short. Thoughts?

Thanks in advance.

Same question. This was near Crescent Lake in Nebraska. Just learning  that both are Curlews did not help the narrowing down.
