Taken at West Byron Wetlands, north coast, Australia.
The Red-kneed Dotterel is a small, plump wader with relatively long legs. It has a black cap covering the eye that reaches from the upper bill to the lower hindneck. A black breast-band stand out against the entirely white chin and throat band. The breast-band grades into chestnut brown flanks. The upperparts are greenish brown and the underparts are white from the belly to the undertail. The bill is red with a blackish tip and the legs from the knees up are red, giving the species its common name. Young birds are similar to adults but the hood and breast band are brown. In all birds there is a sharp edge between the dark hood and white throat.
