Default Stilt In Flight

Stilt adult was watching two chicks that were swimming from little island to little island feeding in Green Cay Wetlands. Mom was busy playing protector chasing off other birds. Black -necked Stilt Chicks feed themselves while the adults watch over them. Those are long landing gears they carry in flight

Really like the first - well framed and the 'pose' works well.

What interesting birds in flight - I've only seen them on the ground, never flying. Their legs look really odd when they fly.

Must agree with both the above - #1 is the best of a fine series, and those long legs do indeed look almost out of place!

Great captures, getting a fairly small bird flying is not easy, nicely done Ed
