On the water
Near Lesser Yellowlegs, there were a 1/2 dozen Lesser Yellowlegs and they tended to harrass the phalarope frequently.
The previous evening I had a very poor look at shorebird over Wachusett Reservoir which seemed to spend a good deal of time over the water, coursing about. The thought of Northern Phalarope had crossed my mind and I left with the feeling a "big one" had gotten away. That certainly maybe why I had Red-necked on the brain today....IF it had been a phalarpe at all....
***Origianlly I report this as a Red-necked Phalarope, of course it is indeed a Wilson's ...as soon as I realized the error the phone rang and the emails came through...saying "Hey Tom".
