Default Black-necked Stilt

I found a couple of Stits wading nearer to the road than normal. Unfortunately, I blew out the whites so the detail on their breast feather is pretty much gone. But, I liked the shots in the early light anyway so here they are.

I love to watch the Stilt's wade in the shallows and I have quite a few shots I took of them the last time I was in Calestoga visiting.

Another boid, I'll never get a chance to shoot. But you never know. I used to say the same about Avocets, and one day a whole flock showed up on my favorite Brooklyn beach...

Thanks Tom.

Dave, Never give up. I said the same thing aboutGreat Horned Owls for years then I found one in a tree, with an unobstructed view, about 40 feet away for a great opportunity. Keep shootin' buddy.
