I do not really have a red neck as my name suggests!

Instead I have a chestnut brown head and neck!
I like eating aquatic insects,
And have a distinctive long
upturned bill,
That is useful for skimming the
surface of the water
Then I catch delicious, small
invertebrates!
I have such long legs that help
me
Wade in shallow water!
I like flying to many different
parts of Australia
Making me a nomadic bird!
