Black-necked Stilt (Himantopus himantopus mexicanus)

Here is another common bird at the Gilbert Water Ranch, this time they let me get very close


Black-necked Stilt rarely breeds inland, but it is known as a breeding bird in riparian locales in Arizona and elsewhere in the southern USA. In Arizona, Black-necked Stilts may been seen along artificially-created lakes and drainage basins in the Phoenix metropolitan area, in remnant riparian habitat.

Hi Everton,

You really did get close to get this wonderful shot of the Black-necked Stilt. Those long pink legs really do look like stilts. I love the pose as he gracefully takes a drink. Beautiful colors, nice details and a lovely natural setting.

Hi Everton. You were able to get close with your 70-300 lens to this Black-necked Stilt . It more interested in looking for food rather than you. Good detail and natural colours. well done TFS.

Have a good weekend.
