NOTES: POOLS AND BAY ALONG ROCKY SHORE. ONE RED AND ONE NORTHERN PHALAROPE (EACH PHOTOGRAPHED BY A.A. ALLEN AND D.G. ALLEN) USUALLY STAYED WITHIN A FEW FEET OF EACH OTHER. I WAS ABLE TO GET BETWEEN THEM AND RECORD EACH SPECIES INDIVIDUALLY, SOME OF THE TIME, BY WADING TOWARD THE BIRD UNTIL IT FLUSHED. BEEP AND BLACKBIRD-LIKE NOTES Sex: 1 UNKNOWN. [Represented here are the "pit" flight-calls described in BNA account. The calls of Phalaropus fulicarius and P. lobatus are very difficult to differentiate here, but I believe that the slighlty sharper and higher-pitched calls were given by P. fulicarius (see also voice announcements). Quality unchanged 3, 2 (signal not too bad, but it is almost impossible to separate the calls of the two species here) - CAM - 18 February 2005]. Other Behaviors: Depart. Habitat: Lake.
