Black-winged Stilt  Himantopus himantopus

A fine example of this seemingly delicate bird.

This wader is a local resident in Southern Africa. It builds its nest in estuaries, marshes, pans and flooded ground which it defends in a very vocal manner.

This image was captured on the Chobe River, near Kasane, northern Botswana.
