The Wilson's Phalarope also appears to have disappeared overnight, as Kevin worked the mudflats in back. I only scoped from the overlook, and saw the 4+ Stilt Sandpipers, but little else of note.
Odd "glitch" with eBird. I see the eBird and the editors got this as a rare sighting, as it shows on the CBC Sightings list for Sept. 12 -- with Stacy Barbour's excellent and definitive photos (yes, it is a Wilson's and not the more hurricane-expected Red-necked). But, even though "Lake Wheeler marshes" shows as the hotspot, when I enter this as the hotspot, and look at View Details, there is no listing for Wilson's Phalarope for 12 Sep 2017. How can that be? The last sighting of the species on the list says 20 Aug 2017. As with so many other computer glitches, I suspect it has to do with the dreaded apostrophe -- Wilson's. Any way an editor can fix this to show Wilson's Phalarope on the Lake Wheeler marshes species list as last seen on 12 Sep 2017?
