Bird Species Profile: Black-necked Stilt

Black-necked Stilts are a very impressive bird species that can be seen throughout the United States.

I’ve loved Black-necked Stilts since just after I started birding. The stilts were just returning to breed at one of my favorite Indiana birding locations, Goose Pond FWA, and I spent a lot of time watching them. As I’ve traveled around the US and beyond over the last few years, I’ve observed this species in many of the places I visit. From St. John in the US Virgin Islands to the endemic subspecies on the Hawaiian Islands, there are many locations to see this cool bird!

The endemic subspecies of Black-necked Stilt is called A'eo in Hawaiian. They can be found on all of the main islands.

St John was one of my favorite place to watch Black-necked Stilts. This individual was running around right next to a flamingo!
