Pied stilts (Himantopus himantopus) are a long legged wading bird found throughout Australasia. Common around wetlands and estuaries, pied stilts feed mostly on aquatic invertebrates. They are easily identified by their black and white plumage, and extremely long, red/pink legs. 

The pictured example was observed at the Taylor Dam.
