A male Black-necked Stilt in the process of building a nest in the dried flats by the first pavilion on the right.

These birds are either totally stupid or suicidal as I can't imagine a worse place to build a nest - out in the open where every predator can see it and easily get to it and doomed to be flooded when the rains come in a week or two.
