At least I think it’s a pair. Some guess work here because as far as I can tell the only way to ID a male from female is bill length. One is longer (?).
And really, they’re both pretty long.
Getting to photograph them, within range, is all based on the water depth. This was too deep but I got lucky.
Their legs are very long, they are members of the ‘stilt’ family. Still the long bill needs to touch bottom to find food.
