2 days ago we were birding with master birder friends at Deer Lagoon, Whidbey Island. Shorebirds are beginning to happen and highlights included western, least, and semi palmated sandpipers, killdeer, and Wilson’s snipe. But the highest highlight was 8 small birds swimming in tight frenetic circles with needle like bills….the first phalaropes we’ve ever seen there. After discussion and research, red-necked phalarope was the unanimous choice.
And, of course, the 50+ White pelicans were there as well .
