Wilson's Phalarope (Phalaropus tricolor)
Wilson's Phalarope (Phalaropus tricolor) monotypic
Sandpipers and Allies (Scolopacidae)
Laguna Atotonilco, Jalisco (Jal), Mexico
Compared with the also present Red-necked Phalaropes it was clear that the W's were spinning considerably faster than the RN's. See video 2189. Dont' know it is species specific. Also notice that some birds are spinning against the clock and some with it. Not sure it it is coincidental or perhaps sex related...? Didn't observe that the same bird turned both ways around.
