Avocets, Gilbert AZ

I fell in love with black-necked stilts for two reasons: They were drop-dead gorgeous and they were one of the first birds I identified after I took up birdwatching. Several years on, they still delight me.

I fell in love with avocets because I first saw them in Arizona, where I had the advantage of seeing the males in their breeding plumage. Oh. My. God. It never gets old.
