Black-necked stilts


This morning, both Norma Wightman and I observed three black-necked stilts along the shoreline opposite the Morro Strand campground. Norma saw them around 8 AM and I saw them at around 8:20AM and then again around 9AM. They were mingled with a group of curlews and godwits, but were more "skittish" than the shorebirds, taking flight when a person approached.
