Stone Curlews

A couple of Stone Curlews
About a year ago, when I came to work after the Passover vacation, I noticed a couple of Stone Curlews (a.k.a. Dikkops or Thick-knees, Burhinus oedicnemus, Авдотка, כרוון מצוי) in the middle of Actelis parking lot. I had my camera with me, so I took a few pictures. Strangely the birds were reluctant to leave the parking lot, running away from me, but not flying.
