Nice!! I have seen a number of phalaropes that were pretty dark on the
back, especially in transitional plumage (which I think this bird probably
is). Plus, the coverts (especially primary coverts) tend to be dark, so if
the bird folds its wings a certain way, it can create the illusion of a
dark back. Also have seen some with relatively dark caps.....

Nice photos and an exciting find!
