I could have a Slender-billed Curlew specimen for one day. I took it to the right habitat to have an experience with this probably extinct species:



I made a few sketches:


Also studied its plumage in detail. Having only a few photos of this species, it is a valuable information for me:

There's no data for this specimen. From the bill lenght (almost double of the lenght of the head) and the not so contrasting head pattern, surely this is a female, and from the fresh plumage I think it is in winter plumage.
