The delicate beauty and gracefulness of the Black Necked Stilt is always a source of pleasure for me to observe.   These gentle birds are easily spotted in shallow freshwater and saltwater areas because of their extremely long pink legs and long needle-like bill.  These qualities make them immediately stand out from other wading and shore birds.  The stilt is depicted life size in this etching which uses 5 copper plates, and is finished with transparent watercolors.
