~ Magazine Road Wetlands - Gillman ~
there's something magical about the way banded-stilts
walk amid the shallows
~ long red legs stepping silently seeking out tasty morsels
and now and again - a little posing for the photographer ~
Banded Stilts are endemic to Australia and quite unique
they nest colonially - lay white eggs - have white downy chicks
and put their young into crèches - how very modern !!
