Mama stilt with baby under wing
Photographer: Meg Puente
Location: Wakodahatchee Wetlands
This little stilt sat diligently on her eggs for days, as we watched. Finally, the babies were hatched, and just learned to get around before a heavy rain came and flooded the nest. I had never seen how they crawl up under the parent's wing, leaving lots of extra feet down below!!
