Robin Song introduces us to a charming little bird in the sandpiper family, with unusual mating and chick rearing roles. It’s an uncommon nester in this area…the red-necked phalarope. Text follows audio.
An email caught my eye in early July from a local birder. Laurie Evans reported that she had Red-necked Phalarope chicks on her pond and was inviting anyone by who wanted to see them. She believed they might have hatched on July third, and that there were possibly five chicks.
