Red-necked Phalarope

Seen on the lake with REPH. Too distant for good photos. Even from out at the shore they were not close enough for any adequate views of bill structure, but they were close enough for adequate scope views of overall structure and plumage.

1
Red-necked/Red Phalarope

Seen with Red and Red-necked Phalarope. It split from the other two after I only made a brief observation. I stayed on the two as to not lose them as we waited for the people at the waterbird shack to make it out to the shore.
