Subject: Red-necked Phalarope at UBNA

Hello Tweets,

My students and I spent an informative and inspiring afternoon yesterday with Connie Sidles at Union Bay Natural Area, aka the Fill. As you’d expect, the students were truly touched by Connie’s passion for and commitment to the place. We were all thrilled when a Red-necked Phalarope (ID’d by Connie, fortunately*) swooped in over Central Pond and then landed dramatically in clear view.

Other highlights included a Cinnamon Teal, Northern Pintail – well, I guess pretty much every sighting was a highlight, really.

Good birding to all,
Trileigh
