Baby Birdorable: Black-winged Stilt

June 6th, 2011 in Baby Birds, Shorebirds 2 comments

If you think our Birdorable birds are cute as adults, what about when they are babies? Below are some baby photos (shared via Flickr) of the Black-winged Stilt. Black-winged Stilts are shorebirds that live across much of Europe, Africa and Asia. Stilt nests are bare scrapes on the ground, close to water. Baby stilts are precocial, meaning they are able to feed on their own very shortly after hatching.
