Black-necked Stilt
There were a half-dozen or more Stilts walking the marsh
along Brighton Ave. the afternoon of 7/30/06. Their loud
"kek-kek-kek" is quite distinctive.

These birds nest on the ground and have one brood per year. They particularly like marshy areas and dine on aquatic insects. Extremely long legs compared to their body size and they will entertain you with their calling and other antics.
