A trip to Cali would not be the same if I did not have the chance to visit the Black-necked Stilts and Avocets. Unfortunately, the Avocets were in short supply at the places we went.
This Stilt seems to be peacefully contemplating the vast, flowing waters of the San Mateo Bay shoreline to decide where he wants to hunt next. Some find Stilts comical looking. I find them very stoically serene.
