Thanks, Phil! Love your recent photos…and I had some thoughts about that interesting crab…left you a comment.
Wilson’s Phalarope| 5 images
Sorry, forgot to post this gallery a week ago. This sequence is of the other shorebird I was able to get photos of, Wilson’s Phalarope. Bit of a strange name, however it explicitly refers to the lobed feet of the Phalarope genus, which are part of the greater shorebird (Scolopacidae) family. The interesting thing about Wilson’s Phalarope is that the females, rather than the males, tend to be flashier and more colorful. Males tend to be an overall rusty reddish color, where as the females have a mix of rusty reds, tans, browns, blacks, grays, and white. Every photo in this gallery is of females.
What a handsome bird. Nice photos, Jon.
Terrific photos of this amazing bird!
