Black-winged Stilt. Ban Pak Thale, Petchaburi Province, Thailand
"My wife and I were completing a 10-day birding excursion through western Thailand with an early morning stop at the salt pans of Pak Thale," says Christopher Adler. "We had observed a spoon-billed sandpiper in the salt pans the previous two mornings, and had hoped for one last look. While slogging along muddy embankments I was struck by the serene pose of this sole black-winged stilt, reflected in the glassy salt water."
