Headed out to Reifel this morning to help with the Marshnotes newsletter mailing. Once that was finished the tide was high, so I headed out to the west field for look before leaving. I was hoping for a Stilt Sandpiper, but no such luck.
Instead were these two Wilson’s Phalarope along with two Red-necked Phalarope. While watching the Phalarope I could hear some Sora chattering away in the reeds.
To make my afternoon one decided to pop out into the open,
… and wander around stretching briefly before disappearing back amongst the reeds.
