Bird Portraiture: Black-necked Stilt
Hayward, California, USA
Member of the Avocet/Stilt Family
*true bird fact*~ Exceptionally leggy birds, they have the second greatest leg-to-body-mass ratio of any bird. They are outdone only by the famous flamingo.
Sticks in packs, not really a leader
Laughs at really dumb jokes. Girl birds roll their eyes.
Really proud of their leg-length. Consider Flamingos to be 'just too much'.
Seems irresponsible at first, but holds down a respectable job
