Calling juvenile Black-necked Stilt

Calling juvenile Black-necked StiltCalling juvenile Black-necked Stilt

There has been a theme for my posts this week, shorebirds and birds from the shore and so far they have all been from Florida but today I am mixing it up and sharing a juvenile Black-necked Stilt image that I created last month here in Utah. Farmington Bay Waterfowl Management area is a great place to see Black-necked Stilts during the breeding season and to see their young later on.

Between calling American Avocets and Black-necked Stilts it can get a bit noisy at times but for me it is a good kind of noise. Much better than the ticking of a clock reminding me of deadlines it is more like the melody of the season.


Still wandering!

    He actually looks like he is smiling. Maybe it has something to do with his eye, and the coloring around the upper part of his bill. I love it.
