The black-winged stilt, common stilt, or pied stilt (Himantopus himantopus) is a widely distributed very long-legged wader in the avocet and stilt family. They have long pink legs, a long thin black bill and are blackish above and white below, with a white head and neck with a varying amount of black. Males have a black back, often with greenish gloss. Females' backs have a brown hue. It occurs in Australia, Central and South America, Africa, Asia, parts of North America, Eurasia, Hawaii and Philippines. Black-necked stilts prefer marshes, mudflats, flooded fields, ponds and drainage ditches where food is abundant.
