White-backed Stilt in P
  Date: February 16, 2004
 
Dexter Hunneman has reported seeing at least two White-backed Stilts just outside of Pisco on February 10 and February 12. Go straight towards the beach from the main plaza and there are some pools along the side of the road. He saw both the white band over the upper back and mostly white heads. There was something mentioned some months ago about coastal records of this species -something that appears to be very rare if I remember rightly.

On august 8 last year I saw what I first thought was a White-necked stilt at Pantanos de Puerto Viejo. I am pretty sure that it in fact was a hybrid. I have just uploaded a picture of that bird on Birding-peru.com under photos ID. I have also uploaded a picture from Titicaca taken august 16 of White-necks for comparison. Note on the hybrid that it has a very clear white neckband but although the forehead is mostly white it is a bit dirty and the white drop above the eye of black-necked can be traced.

If I recall there was a discussion here about a year ago about the taxonomy regarding those stilts, however I don´t remember the conclusion (if there was any).

About this stilt in coast, here in southern coast ( lagunas de Mejia - Arequipa) the white backed stilt is not rare at all, you can see the specie almost all year round, in Mejia lives in simpatry, white backed and black necked stilts; if someone is interested, i saw the two species, three weeks ago in Laguna Iberia Norte in Mejia Lagoons National Sanctuary.

Yes, some months ago we discussed the occurrence of White-backed Stilt. I mentioned then that both species could be seen together in Mejia. I have also photos of White-backed and Black-necked Stilts together in Mejia (from 1996). T.S. Shulenberg also told that R.A. Hughes used to see both species there. Mauricio then confirms what we have known for a long time.
