Stilt


"S" in my nature series is for Stilt


The Black-necked Stilt is somewhat local on shallow ponds with muddy bottoms and grassy edges. Often in pairs or small groups.



Walks delicately, tilting forward to pick food with its needle-like bill. Slender shape, black and white plumage, and extraordinarily long red legs are unmistakable. It's call is a loud sharp pleek or keef or wreek; often repeated incessantly.



Be blessed and be a blessing!
