Black-necked Stilts

Quick spin around Lake Weldona. I have been scanning for shorebirds for a couple weeks without luck. Finally, a pair of Black-necked Stilts came into view. Usually, they settle into a retention pond a mile away behind a church but the water seems to be too high right now. Eventually, I found a total of 4 before they moved on.

A bit down the shoreline I found a Wood Stork relaxing. Should be seeing more of them as the waters draw down and make it easier to grab the smaller fish.

My search for other shorebirds will continue as April moves along...
