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. The scientific name ''Himantopus'' comes from the Greek meaning "strap foot" or "thong foot". Most sources today accept 2–4 species.

Similar species: Waders, Gulls, Auks, Etc.
