Whimbrel (Numinous phaeopus) - 23Mar2016

From the Cornell website: "One of the most wide-ranging shorebirds in the world, the Whimbrel breeds in the Arctic in the eastern and western hemispheres, and migrates to South America, Africa, south Asia, and Australia. It uses its long, down-curved bill to probe deep in the sand of beaches for invertebrates, but also feeds on berries and insects."

Here is some pics from Fort Fisher, NC.
