Good question and it could have interesting results.
Nice with the bright sky.
That’s quite a story. I wonder if the bird has bred and what offspring would look like.
In Eastern Ontario they are only about 10% of the population so many birders have never seen one.
What a gorgeous colour. Have never seen a red phase.
The colours! Brilliant work.
Great action stop. We’ll miss scenes like this as we head into winter.
A very attractive bird and with the eyes open it makes the shot.
lovely color too!
The bird is just off a side road and high enough that it doesn’t react to visitors. We had to wait quite a while though to see its eyes open. It had just done a head scratch with its foot.
Nice looking individual.
It turned out better than I expected.
Great one Brian. Love the soft colours
I got the best photos of a Red Phalarope I have from this encounter.
Amazing find and capture,Brian!
I had made two additional attempts unsuccessfully in previous days so this was a great bird to finally locate. It has now been seen by dozens of eager observers. Because viewing is only to the south at this site, overcast conditions presented uniform light for me to work with, far better than back light.
Wow ! Fantastic find, superb shot .
