A Male RED-NECKED PHALAROPE flew into the freshwater legacy mill pond at
Neawanna Ecological Observatory in Seaside this morning of 05 June 2019 and
seems to be staging and feeding for the day. We're less than twenty days
out from when the first southbound shorebirds will arrive--usually between
the 16th and 19th of June, usually Western Sandpipers...
