That's a very nice photo! and they certainly are spectacularly colored birds. We have them out here in Australia too - (himantopus himantopus) is that the same as your birds?

Birds in flight are always wonderful to see.

I love this picture. The reflection is so cool.

Great photo. When I think of Black-winged Stilts I think of being scolded. They can be quite aggressive and they are not shy about dive-bombing a passing birder! Nice to see a bunch of them in flight like this.

That's a wonderful shot with the reflection! I have one pic of a stilt, but nothing close to that! Thanks for sharing!

Nice capture of the Black-winged Stilts. There is a bird I didn't know of. Very cool looking bird to say the least.
