Artist's Description

The long, slender bill of the Black-winged Stilt is used as the bird forages by pecking at tiny invertebrates on the water’s surface. Although this is its most common feeding method, stilts have been recorded using at least nine different methods to feed. One of them being plunging their heads below the surface to catch sub-aquatic prey. They usually forage by wading in water up to belly deep, but also feed along the muddy margins of wetlands, regularly forming large, noisy feeding flocks, sometimes in association with Red-necked Avocets.
