Red Phalarope(s)

Bob Chapman

Coffee break,

Had a winter plumage Phalarope foraging in South Oso Flaco; medium gray with strong white wing stripe in flight, bill stout and yellow at base. Went to digiscope the bird and it quickly departed to the South. After taking flight 3 more phalaropes followed. Since those 4 birds I have seen 3 others and was able to photograph one, a Red Phalarope showing a calico red underside.
