Description of this image:

Pied stilt Slim and graceful, pied stilts (Himantopus himantopus) can be seen in their hundreds at major estuaries and lakes during autumn and winter, before they fly to their breeding grounds in late winter–early spring. They are black on the crown, nape, back and wings, and white elsewhere. They weigh 190 grams and measure 35 centimetres. A self-introduced species that arrived relatively recently (perhaps around 1800) from Australia, the pied stilt has flourished in New Zealand. – a favourable food supply was released when lowland forests and scrublands were converted to pasture. By 1993 there were around 30,000 birds.
