Wilson's Phalarope  1    This was a very odd looking Wilson's. The back seemed darker than what I would expect for this species as was the head, making the white area around the base of the bill very prominent. A faint eyebrow line can be seen in one of the photos which I did not see while there.This could have been due to the lighting. It was about the size of a nearby Lesser Yellowlegs.
