Black-necked Stilts at Pointe Mouillee

I went to Pointe Mouillee to get my lifer Black-necked Stilts… Its absolutely ridiculous that this is a life bird for me… I have vacationed in their breeding range many times and dipped every time… So, they felt bad and came to michigan for me… I ended up bumping into Wayne Hoch there who was kind enough to carry my tripod in his back pack so I could bring my scope and my camera with me…. Very cool birds… Long Pond about a 1/4 mile walk straight back from the seglar rd entrance.

  1. What beauties. My son-in-law took me into a industrial reserve near Baton Rouge in April and the Black-necked Stilt was my favorite.
