Artist's Description

The Black-winged Stilt is a large black and white wader with long orange-red legs and a straight black bill. It has black on the back of the neck, a white collar and a red iris. Both sexes are similar, and the plumage does not change during the year. Black-winged Stilts give a repeated high-pitched barking call. Young Black-winged Stilts lack black on the back of the neck and have grey-brown wings and back, speckled with white. They have a smudged grey crown, which extends down the back of the neck as the birds get older.
Black-winged Stilts, like many shorebirds, don’t swim while feeding. They feed by pecking at food items while wading in the water.
Canon 50D, 150-500mm F5-6.3 APO DG OS
