Black Neck Stilt – Baby

I believe this was taken within a couple of days after being born.  The parents were very attentive and protective of the eggs.  There were four eggs but only saw three that hatched out.   They grew quickly as they explored their surroundings and it wasn’t long before they could fly.

    Great shots David. That had to be a cool experience to see a little one. Hope that they come back again next year.

      Thanks Tim, I am hoping there will be some activity. It’s been good the last two years. I have been lucky to see a lot up close. Just wish I could keep my camera at work during the spring time.
