 Himantopus himantopus


The black-and-white plumage and long red legs are conspicuous. The bill is long, slender and straight. It forages by wading quickly with a high-stepping gait sweeping the bill over the surface and sometimes submerges its head. In flight the long legs trail out behind. Common resident.
