I love Black Necked Stilts,
They are funny birds.
Adults have long pink legs and a long thin black bill. They are white below and have black wings and backs. The tail is white with some grey banding. A continuous area of black extends from the back along the hindneck to the head. There, it forms a cap covering the entire head from the top to just below eye-level, with the exception of the areas surrounding the bill and a small white spot above the eye. Males have a greenish gloss to the back and wings, particularly in the breeding season. This is less pronounced or absent in females, which have a brown tinge to these areas instead. Otherwise, the sexes look alike.
They fly fast and from what I have seen short distances. For years I have posted about these pink legged critters. Saturday I was fortunate to get a fairly sharp photograph of one in flight. Kinda liked it…..
Played a little bit with the OnOne frame software program.
