Red-necked Phalaropes

William Bouton

Thanks to Kaaren’s post re the Red-necked Phalaropes along Turri Road, and to Jim Van Beveren’s directing me to the correct pond, early this afternoon I was finally able to photograph both the spectacularly-colored males and the more subtly beautiful female that were present. I have often been away from SLO Co during the time of year that the alternate plumaged adults are moving north, but this year, due to the pandemic I am present for the shorebird migration. One of the females today present at the Turri Rd location was present yesterday at the Alva Paul wetland.
