We come now to the Black Necked Stilt which I think is a beautiful bird. They always appear as if they are going to a "black-tie" dinner dressed in a tuxedo. The BNS is found throughout the Americas near both fresh and salt water habitats. Although a lowland bird in North American it can be found in much higher elevations in South America. Birds found in the colder climates migrate to warmer areas for the winter. What I like about this photo, and why I gave it a "5" Star rating is its simplicity: a lone bird standing in still blue water with its mirror image.
