Black-necked Stilt at Bear River Migratory Bird RefugeBlack-necked Stilt at Bear River Migratory Bird Refuge – Nikon D300, f6.3, 1/2500, ISO 640, Nikkor 200-400mm VR with 1.4x TC at 400mm, natural light

In yesterday’s post I mentioned that I have seen my first of the year American Avocets and not long after they arrive Black-necked Stilts will also be making their appearance too. Stilts and Avocets often feed and breed in the same locations here in Utah and Bear River Migratory Bird Refuge is a great place to see them in large numbers. This Black-necked Stilt was photographed the same day and same location that my American Avocet from yesterday was taken, the auto tour route of Bear River Migratory Bird Refuge.

Black-necked Stilts seem so snazzy in their black and white plumage, long pinkish legs and ruby-red eyes!


I am wandering again, please feel free to share this post!
