I found a Red Phalarope today on the south end of Adobe Creek Reservoir (Blue Lake) in Bent County, CO. It was loosely associating with a Red-necked Phalarope. From Road 10, accessed by State Highway 194 just northwest of Las Animas, go north about 10 miles to Road UU. Turn west on UU, and take it to the dam. Take the two-track on the east side of the outlet canal north as far as you can, then walk a couple hundred yards north to the lake. Both Phalaropes were swimming in shallow water just offshore, associating with Greater Yellowlegs in the shallow bay on the west side of the outlet canal.
