The Black-winged Stilt, Common Stilt, or Pied Stilt is a widely distributed very long-legged wader in the avocet and stilt family . Opinions differ as to whether the birds treated under the scientific name ''H. himantopus'' ought to be treated as a single species and if not, how many species to recognize. Most sources today accept 2–4 species.

Similar species: Waders, Gulls, Auks, Etc.
