Description

A lone black stilt on the Ashley Estuary which was associating strongly with a pied stilt and a pied/black hybrid causing me to wonder if this was a family from the previous breeding season.

Pied stilt-black stilt hybrid Himantopus leucocephalus × novaezelandiae

Observer

Date

Description

In a group of mainly purebred pied stilt there was this lone hybrid and a black stilt clearly associating with the hybrid and a single pied stilt. Perhaps the adult pair bond and their surviving chick now grown? In these photos you can see the hybrid on its own, with the pied stilt it was associating with, and with the black stilt it was associating with.

Pied stilt Himantopus leucocephalus

Description

As usual there are a number of poaka over-wintering at Ashley Estuary. I often think it would be worthwhile doing a study to see if the birds that over winter at the estuary are the same birds that breed upstream in the Ashley river during the spring/summer.
This bird was associating with a black stilt and a pied stilt/black stilt hybrid

Charadriiformes is a diverse order of small to medium-large birds. It includes about 350 species and has members in all parts of the world. Most Charadriiformes live near water and eat invertebrates or other small animals; however, some are pelagic (sea birds), some occupy deserts and a few are found in thick forest.
