Bryan McIntosh and I found four BLACK-NECKED STILTS at Borax Lake last Sunday, April 29. Today I saw six. Given the surprisingly high number of stilts and the successional changes in the lake's vegetation in response to lower water levels, I wouldn't be surprised if nesting occurs, so keep an eye out for chicks in the future. Do not leave the road to search for a nest or you may incur the wrath of the property owner.
