Black-necked Stilts in Key West, Florida, March 2013. The Laura Quinn Bird Rehabilitation Center. These birds were in the wild near the rehab. facility. They were life birds for me. They have been reported on the coast of Maine all the way to Canada. Here, they are foraging in shallow Mangrove and Buttonwood swamp water.
