Observation details

video: Red-necked Phalarope First spotted on first survey of south levee but disappeared almost immediately. Stood out even at distance by strong contrast between face patch, neck stripe, and back vs. white body. Clearly stubbier and smaller than WIPHs at same distance. Returned in late morning, relocated by Marky, and watched for 10-15 minutes from distance through heat waves. Back stripes barely visible, and also marginally visible in some video frames.
