red-necked Phalaropes - Haul Road Fort Bragg
- 5-3-06 and 5-2-06
For the last two evenings Red-necked Phalaropes (in breeding plumage)
have been seen in the small wetland/pond on Baxman property adjacent to
the McKerricher Haul Road. Nine were in the wetland/pond last night with
two more at the Virgin Creek outlet.
Four were seen in the wetland the evening before.
- Is it unusual for Phalaropes to be on land during migration? There were
still 26 or so at the Mendocino headlands on Wednesday at noon. Could
it be because upwelling isn't happening yet this year, or because some
other aspect of ocean conditions aren't right for providing them with
enough of the microscopic organisms they eat?
