Turri Ponds

Kaaren Perry

The large number of Red-necked Phalaropes had moved on when I stopped by at 11:00 this morning.  About 20 remained on the first pond.   A single molting juvenile Wilson's Phalarope had joined the group. It was showing the dark cap of a juvenile bird and was feeding in the pond with a few RNPHs.   

What a difference a day makes!
