Media notes

This is a rare bird indeed here along the Mississippi River and it is sporting a rare plumage seldom seen off the breeding grounds.

Observation details

This was my 4th Red Phalarope for West Tennessee and the 3rd for this location. The complete juvenile plumage of this bird was unique and is rarely ever seen this far south. Photos can be seen here: http://www.pbase.com/ol_coot/phalaropes
