Black-necked Stilt In The Wind

Black-necked Stilt In The Wind

This poor Stilt was working hard. There was a good breeze, and they weigh nothing. 5.3-6.2 oz (150-176 g) and a height of 13 to17 inches (33 to 43 cm).

Tall and thin is the best description.

Adult female have a slight brown shading on their back, a breeding male pink tinge on the chest. I would never try to ID a sex on these birds.
