These guys are so unusual looking...they're fascinating. Between those ridiculously long skinny legs and outlandishly long beak, the black-necked stilt seems like it belongs on Misfit Island rather than in the celery fields. This is the kind of bird I saw harassing several big sandhill cranes recently. With those legs and that beak, they must think they're much larger than they are. Either that or they have unresolved anger issues.
