One at Dog Beach for over an hour, still in that area when we left. It came as close as 2 metres from shore. Blake got photos. The other was at the washout. Both seen very well.........dark cheeks, peaked crown.......definitely different birds given distance between and timeline.

Red Phalarope

At Dog Beach about 8:15 this morning. Blake spotted a shorebird heading south around the corner about 1/2 km south of us. About 2 minutes later, it appeared again, flying towards us. It flew right along the water's edge, flew past us and continued flying north where we lost it as it went out over the water. When we first saw it 300 metres to our south, we followed it with binoculars. It was a plump gray and white shorebird with a distinct white wing stripe on dark wings. As it got closer, I was able to see clearly the dark eye-stripe on a white face. It passed within 8 metres of us and at this time I had no doubt that it was a red phalarope. As it continued, I switched to my scope and followed it as it continued north. I could clearly see the gray back and the dark central tail coverts. No doubt at all to the identification. No photos, unfortunately.
