Black-winged Stilt

Click photo to enlarge

Black-winged Stilt standing in the water at the Camargue in France.

Fairly common to locally common in warmer regions. Favours wetlands with open shallow water, often brackish; breeds on bare ground near water, often in noisy colonies. Striking and essentially unmistakable, with elegant shape, boldly pied plumage, long hot-pink legs, and long, very fine bill. Feeds by wading in the water, picking with its bill from the water surface. In-flight, long pink legs stick out far beyond the tail.
