Throughout the year the black-necked stilt is found in Florida, Central America, northern South America and Brazil. During the summer, the species migrates to pockets of the central and western United States. Wetland habitats including estuaries and salt ponds. The species uses its long, thin bill to probe wetland mud for insects and crustaceans. Black-necked stilts nest on the ground in their wetland homes. The female lays three-five eggs, which the male and female incubate cooperatively. Young can run and swim soon after hatching but remain dependent on their parents for roughly six weeks. This photo is taken in the Lincoln Park Zoo in Chicago.
