male Red Phalarope in breeding plummage on left.
2 female Red-Necked Phalaropes in breeding plummage on right.
Taken at ~300' with a Takahashi FC-76 and Canon 350D in light rain and poor light while the birds were spinning like tops stirring up food.
Perhaps they were blown inland while migrating to the Arctic Circle during the sustained nor' easter we've had in New England. Stayed 2 days and then moved on.
