Black-necked Stilt

Close up of a Black-necked Stilt from Bailey’s Track that is located on Sanibel Island, Florida. I found a great pond that had many of these Stilts, many of them nesting. This image was shot from a dike up above the water level. One could get down lower near the water’s edge, but signs warning people of alligators persuaded me otherwise.
